Kseniya Simonova, Sand Artist

Kseniya Simonova won the inaugural Ukraine’s Got Talent competition. The 24-year-old artist is a sand animator who creates dynamic narratives by manipulating sand on a light box into vivid tableaux. Simonova’s victory happened back in April, but a video clip of her winning performance, which made judges and audience members weep, went viral.

The YouTube clip is Simonova’s interpretation of the Great Patriotic War – the Ukrainian fight against the Nazis during the Second World War.
