Inspiration through the ages
Eggspressionist art is a nod to the ritual of painting eggs, practiced for generations around the world as a symbol of rebirth and new life. The practice of decorating eggs goes back 60,000 years in Africa. The oldest discovered examples from Persian and Egyptian cultures are over 5,000 years. The pysanka tradition in Europe dates back at least 1,100 years. Many of these traditions are alive and well today, as evidenced by the Ukrainian Easter egg festival in Lviv, the Nowruz egg festival in Tehran, the Eurasian Garden Spirits in Japan and The Big Egg Hunt in London, New York and Dublin.
From April 17 to June 7
