An interesting exhibition is open for everyone to see in Lviv candle factory, which is located on the Museum Square, near the Church of the Holy Eucharist. Young masters Iryna Danyliuk and Iryna Polianska are the authors. Both say they like experimenting. “A similar technology would be drawing with wax, adding dyes to the material,” says Danyliuk. “However, to my knowledge, no one has ever yet been creating paintings with paraffin!” The artists say they drew abstract painting, the inner cosmos... And theirs is extremely delicate, dreamlike. The paintings are a real cure for melancholy (incidentally, one of the paintings is named like that). The other artworks are The Breath, The Spring Bird, The Crimson Feeling, etc.

This paraffin delicacy can be observed through February 9. As a souvenir of the unique exhibition, one may also buy a picture, and take a look on how it is created. In the making of the artwork, the artists apply their imagination, skill, love and... a miniature iron.
