Trypillian culture flourished across south-east Europe from modern-day Ukraine to Romania and Moldova.

Characterised by distinctive red and orange pottery adorned with curvilinear designs, the Trypillian people practiced shifting agriculture and engaged in intricate rituals.

“Our exhibition aims to celebrate the cultural legacy of the Trypillian people and showcase the talent of Ukrainian jewellers,” says Olga Oleksenko, Founder of the Strong and Precious Art Foundation.

“Through our collaboration with GemGenève, we strive to highlight Ukraine’s rich jewellery heritage to an international audience.”

The upcoming exhibition will feature designs from emerging Ukrainian designers and established Ukrainian brands, unified by strong symbolism and meaning.

Komendat, Aga.te, Anton Boyko, and GeO x Iryna Vasylenko will be participating in the art foundation’s collective for the first time, joining previously represented designers Drutis, Inesa Kovalova, Iryna Karpova, Nomis, and Oberig.
