“Stand With Ukraine” Original
ABOUT THIS DROP:
As the world watches the invasion of Ukraine on television and social media in real time, I think we all feel a sense of horror and disbelief. I find myself asking, “How can this be happening in 2022?” This type of conflict, I thought, was a relic of the 20th century. It turns out, that’s not the case.
Feeling the need to do something, I’ve joined with a collective of artists and NFT projects on the WAX blockchain to turn creativity into action. All proceeds from sales of the Ukraine Aid Drop will go to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. “Stand With Ukraine” is my contribution to this project.
My piece features the Ukrainian flag overlaid a brick wall nested inside of a crypto swatch. I tried to encapsulate the spirit of the Ukrainian people and their steadfast determination to defend their land, sovereignty, and right to life. They have, like a brick wall, stood firm in the face of tyranny.
While this one piece of art is unlikely to shift the needle significantly, my hope is that it, and countless other acts like it, will together help to shift the balance of justice towards what is right.
For $5 (approximately 17 $WAXP), you will receive a pack that contains 5 NFTs from this collective. If the odds are in your favor, you may receive one of my 250 contributions. If not, you will receive 5 different NFTs from amazing artists all over the world and those proceeds will go to support a worthy cause.
