Now every Ukrainian, no matter where he is in the world, is in the context of russia's war with Ukraine. On February 24, 2022, russia launched a full-scale invasion of the territory of Ukraine. russia has occupied part of the territory of Ukraine since 2014, but today the war came directly to the home of each of us. Today, there is no Ukrainian who did not lose someone or something in this war. Today, every Ukrainian man and woman, wherever we are in the world, are repeaters of war and pain. From now, we are filled with war, and war has become a part of us.
I use a photo of myself from a "peaceful" life and a photo of the destruction left after the russian aggression.
At the moment, there are 6 works in the series. Works participated in exhibitions in Germany and Ukraine.
Price 50 euro, with framing.
I am a contemporary Ukrainian multimedia artist. I work with such media as graphics, painting, collages, video, installations, performance.
Was born in Zaporizhzhia in 1988. Have been living and working in Kyiv since 2016. My mother also drew for pleasure. But our family had no idea how to work in a creative profession. I always understood that my path should be in the creative field, but after school, I still received a technical higher education. After searching in various professions, burnout and mental disorder, in 2019 I came to art. Now I understand that this is really my passion.
No matter how my life turned out, I already felt what it's like to be passionate about what you do.
In my work, I use various media to explore the themes of ecological attitudes towards myself and others, the importance of understanding personal boundaries and awareness of existence.
They are important to me, because of the psychological traumas received in my childhood, bullying and the inability to protect my personal boundaries until now.
As a person and as an artist, I strive for a harmonious and safe existence in society. To take my place and do what I can to the best of my ability.
