UKRAINE MURAL SEEN AROUND THE WORLD SET FOR FUNDRAISING PRINT RELEASE
Portsmouth street artist My Dog Sighs has recently been on a on tour of talks around the UK speaking about his recent INSIDE project that happened through 2020-2021, culminating in a huge installation and exhibition in Southsea in the late summer. Whilst in the different towns and cities he has been painting murals in different locations, with on mural painted in Cardiff in particular hitting a resonating chord with people: a tearful eye in front of a Ukrainian flag.
“We’ve all sat and watched this hideous situation unfurl and while it’s not much, I wanted to do what I know best, (throwing paint) to highlight my sadness and anger over the Ukrainian invasion by Russia. I used two images to create the silhouette, the first, the beautiful cathedral in the centre of Kyiv and the second a powerful photo that came up on my Twitter feed this morning of last nights attack. The tear speaks for itself. A horrid horrid situation. I stand with you Ukraine.￼” – My Dog Sighs
