My body of work has always reflected or depicted Ukrainian culture whether it be historical events that I wanted to manifest into a piece or folklore that I used as a motif. As a country that was unknown to the world, I felt it was my duty to share my people’s story. This year I did not think Ukraine would be a headline across the world, never did I expect my country to become a topic of discussion in British households. Unfortunately, my beautiful country has become centre stage as a victim of an unjust war, this had come at a very critical developmental stage of my artistic journey. I do not want to continue creating underlying meaning, I want to create explicit and clear messages. My work is about Ukraine. It is about Ukrainians. It is about our OWN, INDEPENDENT, TRUE identity.
GLORY TO UKRAINE.
