The poster exhibition "Love" from the Sunseed Art project opened at kmbs
The large-scale Russian Federation invasion of our country's territory was quite a shock for most Ukrainians. We all experienced many strong emotions: surprise, anger, aggression, and sometimes despair and panic. Ukrainian artists experienced these first months of the Great War especially.
"I couldn't do any household things. All the time, I just worked, worked, worked," says Ukrainian artist Albina Yaloza. Many of her colleagues reacted to the aggression of the Russian Federation in the same way. For many artists, the poster became a genre allowing them to quickly, accurately, and vividly convey their emotions and thoughts. Extremely apt, robust, relevant, and aesthetically exciting signs instantly spread across social networks. Currently, poster art is on an incredible rise.
Olesya Drashkaba, the co-founder of the Sunseed Art project, said this at the opening of the "Love" poster exhibition at kmbs. After a meaningful retrospective review, Olesya presented the guests of the event with the works of artists who are members of Sunseed Art — a platform store for the sale of Ukrainian posters with the best possible conditions for artists (50% royalty!), interest for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the help of the "Return Alive" fund.
The curatorial collection "Love" collected different facets and manifestations of love from talented Ukrainian artists. This is love, faith, hope, and joy. Love for our land, nature, traditions, music, and beauty. This is support and admiration for Ukrainians and the opportunity to be here and now, to have the honor to tell the world about our country, the country of freedom and courage, and the country of talented people who want to live and love.
The exhibition of posters at kmbs brings together the works of eleven authors and will last until August 4.
