Bus stops, fences, houses, village council building and schools - the village of Samchyky (Khmelnytska Oblast) is successfully implementing the first stage of the art project 'New Life of Samchyky painting'.

The main elements of the painting are birds, a tree of life, plant ornament. Its common colors are natural: yellow, blue, green and red; the frame is white and black; accents are performed in violet and brown.

In the spring of 2019 more than 20 houses will be painted under the project.
