Famous pop-surrealist artist from the USA sold 3 pieces to support Ukraine

Mab Graves, a famous pop-surrealist artist from the USA, has created three pieces to support Ukraine and Ukrainians affected by war. She sold digital downloads of her paintings and raised more than $20 000, which Mab donated to the Coordination Center Save Ukraine Now aimed to coordinate, analyze, collect, and send any help to places in dire need due to the war conditions.

Mab has painted three pieces; the first one is a young girl in a field of wind-whipped wheat. She stands fiercely, gripping the Ukrainian flag like a spear against a coming storm. The second one is a Mother, protectively holding two young children on each hip. A storm is billowing behind her, and an aircraft's shadow passes above her. The third piece is a portrait of a grandmother standing in a vast, endless field of sunflowers staring straight ahead. 

"I wanted them to remind people of the innocent lives, caught in the middle of this chaos - while also paying homage to their fierce bravery," says Mab Graves.

She listed digital downloads of her paintings in the Etsy store at various donation levels so anyone who wanted to send funds could purchase one.

"I was hoping I could make a couple of thousand dollars to send, and I was completely blown away when my site was flooded. I could wire 20k to “Teple Misto” within just a few days," says Mab. She also made further donations to ROVC Alliance for Ukraine for medical trauma kits and helped with a Returned Peace Corps humanitarian aid.

"It's important to help people watching in horror at what is unfolding in Ukraine understand that this war is Our War, and we can all help fight it together," says Mab.

Mab Graves is a Contemporary Pop-Surrealist artist living and painting in American Midwest. She discovered painting in early 2009. Mab’s work has been shown in galleries globally, and has appeared in print articles, magazines, books, and has been sold in more than 56 countries.
