About the work “Bouquet of Dawn

The title of the artwork is “Bouquet at Dawn”.
The organizer, Ms. Monica’s words made a great impression on me: “Although the focus is on war, this is not really how a country is known,” and “A country that is originally known for its technology and creativity has become known around the world in an unfavorable way.
This time, I wanted to depict the beauty of the future beyond the war, and came up with the idea of expressing the inherent beauty of Ukraine as a bouquet of flowers. The base of the work is black, but there is also a blank space, expressing a landscape that is still dark before dawn, but has not lost its light.

To all of you who have been supporting me

I believe that many of my art buyers are buying a painting for the first time. Many of you may have never participated in an art auction before. I am taking on a new challenge: the artists who have purchased my artwork are now hosting auctions.

Please join us and let’s create this place together.

We look forward to seeing you there.
