The artwork by Andriy Baranovsky, an ATO veteran and active participant in the Revolution of Dignity, are an emotional reflection of the tempestuous events of recent years. Andriy Baranovsky is a defender of the Motherland, but his vocation and professional interest is art. The project is dedicated to the courage of Ukrainians. Despite the tragedy of modern events, there is always hope: “The artist always has to seek his own truths ... I paint to bring beauty to the world” - Andriy.
