Heartbreaking Sympathy For Ukrainians Depicted In Artworks
Source: Kasia RubinObserving the invasion through the screens of phones, tablets, computers or televisions truly gives us a feeling of helplessness, which can only be demonstrated through the most traditional form of expression: art. Artists are simply putting their emotions into their works, whenever they process one.

Her watercolor painting depicts a woman grasping the Ukrainian flag within her hand, gazing from afar as the sun rises over an abstract landscape. To the right of the main character, there are other countries’ flags, including some European ones.

It was from my bottom of my heart with hope that others countries will react. And now everybody sees what’s going on. Peace and love for Ukraine.”
