The biggest museum in Ukraine is open for visitor with the project of national style – Boichukism. The Boichuk School arose on the basis of the problems that sharply faced Ukrainian art at the beginning of XX century. Mykhailo Boichuk and his supporters tried to restore the lost identity of Ukrainian art. The artist played the main role in the creation of such a movement as neo-visizm, raising various forms of artistic activity, moving away from academic distribution to “lower” and “higher” forms. This art was addressed to the masses and was guided by the further development of artistic culture in Ukraine. Boichukists tried to spread new art right up to the Shot Revival in 1937. They became enemies of Stalin’s social culture and were doomed.
