ABOUT THE ART
Gavin Mitchell has created Postcard for Ukraine to raise funds for Eurohelp’s Aid for Women Fund. This fund provides refuge and support to women and children from Ukraine that are in a critical life situation.
Postcard for Ukraine depicts a geisha, proudly sporting a peace badge and holding a Ukrainian flag aloft in solidarity with the war-torn nation. Mitchell explains:
"Using the Geisha image from a vintage postcard felt to me like a representation of the universal show of support around the world toward Ukrainians in the war with Russia. The composition is evocative of the socialist realism style of art in the USSR in the early 20th century, which amongst other things was designed to represent the emancipation of the common people - an ironic visual twist given that Russia are now seeking to conquer and enforce their will on an independent country."
