Stand with Ukraine
My works of art are a form of my civic expression through graphic images. In my series of posters intended to support Ukraine, I use well-known, popular metaphors to make them easily understood across the world, without the need for lengthy explanations. After all, the main role of works of art is to become memorable and leave no audience indifferent to the war in Ukraine and the problems it leads to. To make every viewer able to connect the dots, analyse the causes of this war, and know who the aggressor is.
