Right now, Mariya Prymachenko’s great-granddaughter proposes to rename Druzhby Narodiv underground station in honor of the great Ukrainian artist.
The corresponding petition is stated on the website of the Kyiv City Council.
"I propose to honor the name of a great Ukrainian woman who glorified our country worldwide! By the way, next year Ukraine will celebrate 110 years since the birth of one of the most prominent artists of our history", explains in the text of the petition Anastasia Prymachenko, the great-granddaughter of the artist and the author of the petition.
Boulevard of Druzhby Narodiv got its name in 1959, and later the underground station was named in its honor. In 2009, half century later, a boulevard of Maria Prymachenko arose next to him.
Maria Prymachenko is the 20th century art phenomenon, the Ukrainian genius, who’s Artworks were admired by Picasso and Chagall. "I lean toward the ground in front of the wonderful art of this talented Ukrainian woman", Pablo Picasso spoke about her. Her name is on the same line with the world's best artists of Primitivism, along with Henri Russo, Niko Pirosmani and Matisse. Her name was glorified in Paris, Montreal, Prague, and in all the cultural centers of Europe and the world.
""To people for joy" is so called cycle of works of the artist. I propose that at least on one Kyiv underground stations, the name of Maria Prymachenko was proclaimed, bringing to people the same joy and for the whole country to remember", writes Anastasiya Prymachenko.
