Ukrainian Print Exchange

The UPE is an unjuried print exchange with no assigned theme, open to all professionals, students and beginners! The UPE is an annual event organized by NAPAPERI Printmaking Studio, Kyiv, Ukraine. This Exchange was founded in 2016 by Ira Gvozdyk with the hopes of supporting development printmaking in Ukraine.


The key point of the exchange is for each artist to provide 14 prints of a given size in limited edition, created specifically for the event. Artists are allowed to work in any known classical techniques
of printmaking. The organizing studio of the exchange, NAPAPERI, keeps two prints- the first for the archive and exhibition in Gallery 83, the second for sale to fund future projects. The other prints are randomized and sorted. Thus, by the end of the exchange, every participant has a chance to collect 12 works of their colleagues. By taking part in such exchanges across the world, an artist has a unique opportunity to gather a personal collection of original prints at home.
