Art has been a constant source of hope and light during humanities darkest moments. How has art helped you through this time?

I feel like my journey as an artist is to tell stories whether they are real or fantastical they tell a story of a place, a story of a person. These stories can give you hope, or make one see something different or make one dream. For me I hope it makes one have more empathy. In dark days like these, when there is War and so much pain, it's very hard to think about beauty when there is so much destruction and death happening in front of your eyes. But Art is healing for me, it’s the main way for me to communicate to express my sorrow or my hope. Art is so essential for us humans it opens our souls. These hard days hearing a piece of great music that reminds you of a beautiful moment from the past or reading a poem that inspires love, makes me feel hopeful. That goodness will prevail, and peaceful vision is ahead of us. And that I will be back in my homeland soon and we will all come together and rebuild our beautiful country of the Ukraine.
