Olesia Mural (наступна революція буде в культурі)

Completed: October 2021

The title of this mural translates to “The next revolution will be in culture,” and the small print reads “Music from the deepest layers of the Ukrainian Tradition.” This work shares stories and music of Ukrainian culture, and promises immigrants a rich and fertile future. The red poppy represents the blood of those who are hungry with self-determination and reflects ideas of revolution and creativity. This poppy also comes from a 1996 music project by Ukrainian Artist Alexis Kochan, titled Paris to Kyiv.
