Kinder Album


About the artist

Kinder Album is the pseudonym of a young woman artist from Lviv, working in a variety of media including painting, graphic design, photography, street art, video art, installation and performance art. She studied architecture in Lviv University and Technische Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe in Germany. An anonymous art project initially started on Facebook in 2012. In 2015, the artist was nominated for the PinchukArtCentre prize. The pseudonym “Kinder Album” is derived from the artist’s appreciation for the musician Sergey Kuryokhin and his “Children’s Album”, and the ‘children’s album’ in classical music, such as Tchaikovsky’s 24 Pieces for Piano. The characteristic naiveté of the traditional children’s album, along with the finger-paintings of her three-year-old son, served as initial inspirations for her artworks.
