The art of Petrykivka or Petrikovka got its name from the inhabitants of the village of Petrykivka or Petrikovka, located in Dnepropetrovsk oblast in Ukraine, where the women created this remarkable folk art when they painted floral and plant motifs on the house's outer walls. This lasting art form dates back to the end of the 18th century. It is considered the heart and soul of the Ukrainian decorative folk art and is well known around the world as a collectible.

For a reasonable period of time, Petrykivka paintings only decorated the exterior walls of the house before they began using it on paper, wood paneling and cloth. Mineral pigments are used to make colors. Instead of brushes, they used short layers of reed, twigs or even fingers to apply the color of the primed thin layers of clay to the walls to create their decorative wall decor. Use of three accent colors to mark and distinguish their floral designs and plant patterns - red, yellow (or yellow-green) and dark blue became a business card of Petrykivka folk music artists.

The city's craftsmen saw popularity and the demand for this new type of art began to produce household utensils, crockery, chests, boxes, plates and other wall decorations for home furnishings and collectibles.

The tradition of this art has gone down from one generation to the next becoming more refined and sophisticated. In 1950, modern production studies and schools began to meet the collectives' demand.

The largest and most impressive collection of Petrykivka style ceramics, lacquered wooden chests, drawers, plates, porcelain vases, exquisite paper paintings and other Ukrainian folk decorative arts from 1910 to 1990 are displayed in a museum in the city of Dnepropetrovsk.
