Ukrainian pensioner turns his multi-storey apartment block into an art gallery

Volodymyr Chayka has found a novel way to bring colour into his daily life. He managed to turned what used to be the grey Soviet-type corridor of his Kiev apartment block into an elaborate work of art.

Dubbed by locals as the ‘Kiev Versailles’, many are now flocking to pay Chayka a visit in his home in the Ukrainian capital outskirts, turning it into a tourist hotspot.

Once the doors are open, Chayka’s house turns into a fantasy of art.
