Viva Ukraine!

Viva Ukraine!

March 29, 2022

It is inconceivable for me to continue to discover and draw places around the world without being affected by the invasion of Ukraine and catastrophic consequences of Russia’s act of aggression against one of its neighbours.  I therefore decided to create a piece of art that will enable people across the world to share their support for the Ukraine as well as helping refugees remember their homeland as they try to recover from the trauma and loss of war.

I have collaborated with a British based Ukrainian organisation: Ukrainian Events in London, to raise funds for the nation’s refugees and to create a unique art print of Ukraine that celebrates its landscape, cultural identity and positive spirit.

The contemporary illustration, drawn in patriotic blue and yellow, features the iconic Monument of Independence in Kyiv, a symbol of Ukraine’s fight for freedom. Sunflowers, the country’s national flower, dot the landscape. A nightingale, a popular icon of Ukraine, calls for freedom whilst a tractor pulls a tank, referencing the powerful street art created by its people, and which recognises that in the Ukraine, this is everyone’s fight.

 

I am donating the proceeds from the sale of my Ukraine art print to the non-for-profit organisation: Ukrainian Events in London. As such, sales of the Ukraine art print will help to support the nation’s refugees in Britain as well as people who have been displaced by the devastating conflict back home in the Ukraine.

The Ukraine, giclee art print, printed onto archival paper, is available to buy in several sizes and can be personalised. It is also available for wholesale on the condition that retailers likewise donate the proceeds from the sale of the print to a charity that is dedicated to raising funds to support the people of Ukraine.
