Unique paintings by Ukrainian artist celebrate Year of Tiger
Anatasiia Kuusk, a Ukrainian painter who loves Vietnam, has designed a collection of paintings portraying the tiger to celebrate the Year of the Tiger in Vietnam in 2022.
|Anatasiia Kuusk was born and grew up in Ukraine. Two years ago she arrived in Vietnam before the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, and she later chose to stay in the country.|
|She says the image of the tiger reminds her most of Vietnam, similar to her feelings of Europe as bears or Australia as koalas.|
