All proceeds go support the Ukrainian artists who now became refugees after the war broke out and to buying equipment for a new Childrens Hospital in Lviv, Ukraine.
Tata Kolesnik isa Kharkiv-born contemporary artist, who learned to paint in the early 2000sunder the tutelage of the great Ukrainian artist Eugen Bikov. At the start of the war, Kolesnik was forced to evacuate from her hometown of Kharkiv toGermany.
Kolesnik’s work is deeply influenced by traditional Ukrainian portraiture and iconography, particularly in relation to women and their place in society. Tata uses her work to convey shared experiences and common stories – stories which, since the onset of the invasion, have become inextricably linked with conflict and the struggle for freedom.
Artworks are in private collections of Ukraine, USA, Germany, Sweden, Belgium, UK, France,Canada and others.
