Artists4Ukraine started in the first days after the Invasion of Ukraine. Swedish born Artist Julia Mai Linnéa Maria asked If it could be possible to start an art auction to raise funds for Ukraine and American born Icelandic-Ukrainian Artist Alexander Zaklynsky jumped to the chance to help. In the days since we organized Artists4Ukraine which is an artist run fundraising initiative. As artists we watched the nightmare developing and felt helpless. What could we do to help as artists with no money or capacity in a far off land to make any difference directly. We decided the best thing in the short run was to raise money for charities through art and engaging the public, showing solidarity and initiative to shed light on the ways people could help. Developing a platform for like minded artists to donate work for sales direct to charities was the original plan. This evolved into a collaboration with Bio Paradis to screen Ukrainian films where ticket sales go to charities directly involved in the war in Ukraine. We are developing a program of Ukrainian film and Art Auctions for Ukraine. We Stand strong with Ukraine.
