Ukrainian association of Graphic Designers: The 4th Block, in partnership with the PosterTerritory initiative presents an open Poster Call “Stand with Ukraine”.
Olga Severina, a Ukrainian artist currently in the United States, is organizing poster and graphic art shows at the Helms Design Center in Culver City. Working in collaboration with colleagues and friends Angela Anthony and Frances Anderton, “who called me immediately, as this war started, wanting to meet and asking me about what and how they can help.” at the Helms Design Center, together with PosterTerritory, is adopting an exhibition format called “Projecting Possibilities.”
“Our entire nation’s struggle strengthens our unity and demonstrates the fortitude of the international design community that stands with us in our battle for human rights, freedom, and peace. Together we fight against Russia which wages a brazen and gruesome war in Ukraine. We are continuously publishing these posters on our internet platforms, submitting them to anti-war poser calls and exhibitions here in Ukraine and abroad.
At the gallery, visitors can see artworks from the “Stand with Ukraine” poster call launched by the Ukrainian Designers Association The 4th Block. The graphics are about war and love, with words of hope and pain felt by the participants. “Our team is from different countries, but we are all connected by our love of people who are now hiding in bomb shelters in cities, towns and villages all over Ukraine,” says Severina, who declares: “We are creatives standing with Ukraine!”
There are currently around 1000 posters from more than 50 counties. The “Stand with Ukraine” poster call is open to everyone.
