Petro Sydorenko,Vichnaya pam'yat

A very touching obituary on the artist Petro Sydorenko, here.

I unfortunately wasn't aware of Mr. Sydorenko and his brilliant work. Sounds like another unsung hero and a national treasure Canadian society was content to remain buried, quite possibly simply because he was Ukrainian and of little interest to Canada's nativist establishment.

Well, at least there was a great article written about him while he was still alive in the New Pathway .

There's also a nice tribute by blogger Peter McCormack.

Deepest condolences to the Sydorenko family. A great loss to all of us as well, tho.
