Amazing Artist

leave a comment »

Now THIS is what I consider the height of creativity! I stumbled upon a news story about the winner of the Ukrainian version of “America’s Got Talent,” and was totally mesmerized by what this woman does.

The particular video I saw was the one that clenched the competition victory for her… a “sand animation” telling of the invasion of the Ukraine by Germany. It’s art, it’s storytelling, it’s choreography… all at one time and done in what I can only imagine, must be a difficult medium to master. The way that the figures morph from one image to another is the most amazing part.

I went to YouTube today to watch other works of hers, but none were so moving as the first one, shown below. It’s kind of long, at a little over eight minutes, but when you have the time, do yourself a favor and watch it. I think you’ll be impressed. Let me know what you think.
