Stunning Sand Animation by Kseniya Simonova
This is an absolutely breathtaking performance by Kseniya Simonova on the popular show Ukraine’s Got Talent. The 24-year old artist specializes in sand animation, a style of live performance art. Using a simple light table, Kseniya uses sand to tell her story. The canvas is in a constant state of change as she moves seamlessly from scene to scene. Paced beautifully to haunting music; it is easy to see why she was declared the inaugural winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent.

For winning Ukraine’s Got Talent, Simonova took home a well-deserved $1,000,000 Ukranina Hryvnia or approximately $125,000 USD. Step aside Susan Boyle, a challenger has risen!
