Make Peace, Not War
“Make Peace Not War” is a work with a completely clear, unambiguous message. Inspired — or rather devastated — by the developments in Ukraine, I felt I was not able to help as much as I would have liked. I was far away from Poland during the war, so I felt a strong desire and need to get involved and help. And that’s how the poster was born. It’s an artistic expression of emotions and support — support offered by me but also by the whole world, which suffered together with the citizens of Ukraine. “Make Peace Not War” is a manifesto that resulted mainly from a sense of powerlessness. It was also meant to draw the attention of those who did not realise how terrible the situation of our neighbours was.
