In the spring, together with Dnipro Center for Contemporary Culture, we launched a charity sale of Ukrainian graphics from the Artsvit collection to raise funds for the humanitarian needs of our country.
We have found owners for more than 40 works in these few months. We decided to spend the received funds on helping doctors who fight every day for the lives of military and civilian victims of the war. We managed to purchase an ambulance, transport it from Germany and send it to the service of human life. All this became possible only thanks to you - the people who contributed to our charity project by purchasing the works of Ukrainian artists.
Виктория Никитина (Viktoria Nikitina), a curator of the Artsvit collection, talks about the works selected for sale:
"When creating a selection of graphic works for this charity event - at the beginning of the war - I wanted to focus on simple, understandable topics that could tell more about our beautiful country. That is why landscapes of Ukrainian cities, famous monuments, or works related to Ukrainian traditions, literature, folklore, etc., were chosen. The selection of the second batch was challenging and painful. It happened when the Russian aggressor destroyed many Ukrainian cities and historical monuments, and the world shuddered at the war crimes and genocide against Ukrainians. I looked at engravings with industrial Mariupol or landscapes of Kharkiv and understood that this factory, house, the street is no longer there..."
We continue the charity sale of graphics from the Artsvit collection. Please visit our website and buy Ukrainian art to support us in the fight for freedom.
