"There was a war for breakfast" poster project
Dear art lovers, friends of the artist's gallery of the Kyiv organization of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine. In difficult times of war for all the people of our state, we are trying to withstand harsh trials.
The brutal war waged by the fascist invaders literally knocked us out of the peaceful path of creative life. But little by little we come to our senses and strive to make a powerful contribution to the victory of the Ukrainian people.

And when the Lord endowed her with talent, all this is multiplied several times. This category includes the People's Artist of Ukraine of 1992, sculptor, winner of the National Prize. T.

"Wings will be saved during landing!" -
The motto of the Honored Artist of Ukraine from Sumy Region
Mykola Lebedya (1936-2007)
She started writing immediately after the announcement of the Laureates of the 2021 National Prize, but the tragic events turned her life upside down, everything broke down in her soul, she froze. It's not even despair, but rather an incredible insult, a dirty devastating tsunami that stopped time. We got off the daily path of peace filled with creative work. Racist Russia's attack on peaceful Ukraine has clouded our consciousness. An incredible desire to be useful to my God-given Ukraine helped me to get out of the state of shock in a cruel time of trials…
Everyone is a warrior in their city !!!!
War is a marathon. It is important for everyone to be active in their city, to become a chain of common resistance. Today, the capacity of all segments of the population, both on the front and in the rear, is more important than ever. One of the examples of such resistance is the creative youth in the capital of Ukraine. We will talk about the posters of graphic design students KNUKIM and UCC in the struggle for Ukraine show how the authors see someone who seeks to deprive it of its future, said a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine Andriy Budnyk on his Facebook page.
When young people draw, guns are silent!
Incredibly difficult time for the Ukrainian community. Like adult children, young students are full of stressful experiences. They try to convey their creative excitement through creative works. Oksana Popinova, a painting teacher at the Department of Fine Arts of the Borys Hrinchenko Institute, published a picture of her second-year student Veronika Konofolska entitled "Ukrainian Icon" on her Facebook page. This is how young people share their feelings, impressions of the aggression of Nazi Russia, which turned our peaceful life into hell….

PRAYER FOR KYIV
Each city of Ukraine has its Guardian Angels, coat of arms, rarities, unique landscapes, special architectural structures, monumental works of art. But the real business card is created by people. On the banks of the Dnieper, the sculptural composition of the founders of Kyiv, the brothers Kia, Khoriv, Shchek, and their sister Lybida pleases the eye. (Co-authors architect M. Feshchenko, sculptor V. Boroday, on the occasion of the 1500th anniversary of the founding of Kyiv). And on the mountain cliffs, the city is blessed by Prince Vladimir the Great of Kyiv. The monument was opened in 1853 by architects Alexander Ton, sculptors Vasily Demut Malinovsky and Petro Klod.
Archangel Michael guards us on Independence Square. Just above the Golden Gate - the main gate of ancient Kyiv. The monument of defensive architecture of Kievan Rus is mentioned in the annals under the year 1037. And already at hand is the ancient church of St. Sophia of Kiev (1011-1918), built by Yaroslav the Wise. UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Today we will talk about the unique image of the Mother of God, which is located in the central dome of the oldest temple in Ukraine, St. Sophia of Kiev.
