IT TAKES A PAIR
When Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24, 2022, not only did it unjustly invade a sovereign country, but it also violated principles of the civilized world, built upon mutual trust, stability and cooperation.
Many believed that it would be a matter of weeks until Ukraine was eventually overpowered by a bigger invading nation. But the world was quickly galvanized by the immense courage and the fighting spirit of the Ukrainian people in the fight for their land and national identity. They were not going anywhere, but forward and into the battlefield.
Moved and inspired by the Ukrainians’ fierce and patriotic love for their country, I created a symbol, that to me conceptually captured what I was witnessing in the news reports. The art is in the form of Hard Enamel Pins and Screen Prints. To help support the country in these dire times, 50% of the proceeds will go to trustworthy charities that are working to help Ukraine and its people to survive, and eventually thrive.
