In our Festival, Miroslaw, a painter and iconographer, displays his frescoes work at the Orthodox Church of St. Cyril and Methodius, Humenne (Slovakia).
The church was consecrated by the patriarch Bartholomew in the 90s.
The frescoes were created when the parish priest was Father Peter Humenik. My participation in the Orthodox Arts Festival is a tribute to the memory of that great priest. Without his commitment the project these frescoes would never have been created.
Unfortunately, this year this wonderful priest died...
I created my wall paintings in the years 2009 - 2019.
Miroslaw was born in 1977 in Głogów (Poland). In his words "...I grew up in a beautiful place, in the Low Beskids in the Lemko region. I am very emotionally connected with this land where my ancestors - Rusyns / Lemkos / Ukrainians lived for centuries. I graduated from the State Secondary School of Fine Arts. A. Kenar in Zakopane and the Iconographic Study in Bielsk Podlaski."
