Kseniya Simonova Sand Animation premiering at Ukraine's Got Talent competition in 2009 ushered in a new performance art.

Directed by Kseniya Simonova.

Starring Kseniya Simonova.

I first saw Kseniya's performance in Ukraine's Got Talent on Youtube back in 2009. I was struct by the simplicity and power that moved her audience. I was amazed at the beauty not only in her art, but in her performance. She somehow managed to stay focused and unemotional as her story unfolded through her hands onto her canvas.

It's not often an artist creates a new performance art that has, so much raw emotional power and tells a complete story as it is being made. The videos below showcase her art better than all the words in all the languages on earth ever could.

In the video below watch how the audience is brought to tears and become very emotional as Kseniya's art comes to life before their very eyes.

The video below is great for me as an artist, because it shows Kseniya's creative process at work. Simonova goes for a walk along the beach in winter and it inspires her to create her next sand animation for Christmas. 

Trivia - Her Husband, Igor suggested doing sand art and also to enter Ukraine's Got Talent competition.
