Miss Free

Miss Free is a symbol of women’s courage, fortitude, and indomitability in all armed conflicts, but the colours and symbols place her in the setting of the war in Ukraine. The work was created spontaneously as an art print on the third day of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. The artwork was also turned into a mural in the Targówek district of Warsaw.
