Street Artists show their support for Ukraine 

Posted: 4th April 2022

Artists from all across the globe have been showing their support and standing in solidarity with Ukraine through murals and other public artworks since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began on February 24th 2022. Most pieces feature Ukraine’s national colours and images of the country’s president along with images depicting the bravery and strength of the Ukrainian people.

JenksArt painted 2 pieces to show support to Ukraine in Llanelli and Port Talbot, Wales. The first shows two hands painted in blue and yellow creating a heart shape with the words ‘Pray For Ukraine’, representing the love and thoughts being sent to Ukraine and the second again shows a hand-painted in blue and yellow making a fist, representing strength, alongside an image of a dove, representing peace.

A small sign on a lamppost in New York’s Lower East Side shows a painting of President Zelensky with the words ‘I NEED AMMO! NOT A RIDE’. This piece brings attention to Zelenky’s refusal of offers to leave the country and instead choosing to stay and fight the war. The sign provokes the fact that Ukraine requires military assistance in terms of ammo and weapons.
