Be part of A Unique Book of Ukrainian Street Art
WHY AM I GOING TO UKRAINE TO DOCUMENT STREET ART?
PERSONAL STATEMENT OF MOTIVATION, BY DAOUD SARHANDI WILLIAMS
Like most people, I felt outraged when Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, claiming that the Ukrainian people have no right to their own nation.
For a long time, I felt powerless: what could I do? The forces at play are so vast. But now I've come up with a cultural project that is truly original – a book of Ukrainian street art.
I will put together a book that showcases this art. Ukrainian artists have been painting their ideas and identity on the walls of their cities since 2014, and especially since the Russian invasion. Some foreign artists have joined them and added an international perspective. My book will make a permanent and beautiful record of this creative explosion.
In return for your support, I’m offering you a documentary-style series of podcasts about Ukrainian daily life – along with a postcard sent from Ukraine with an original "Russian Warship" stamp.
My initial trip is planned, booked and organised. I leave for Kyiv on the 12th of August. I will take photos, meet street artists, as well as art and culture students and professors at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. The material I gather on this trip will form the backbone of the book.
As soon as I get home in September (I am currently living in Spain) I will start putting the book together.
Please read more and support that book on Indiegogo
