A couple of days ago Australian street artist Fintan Magee created his fourth mural in Kyiv, Ukraine.
As a part of the Mural Social Club Festival that is taking place in Ukraine a world-known Australian street artist Fintan Magee decorated a 17-floor high building in Kyiv with the large-scale painting of a girl. The title of the artwork is ‘The visionary’.
The project was supported by International Charity Foundation called “Ukraine! I am for you!”.
“For me street art and muralism have an important social purpose, and that is to bridge a gap between the general public and the gallery. If the art institutions become too focused on creating art for an educated elite they will become disconnected from the general public. That’s why I was so excited to work in Troeshyna, the neighborhood that is geographically disconnected from the center of Kyiv so it’s important that we also work here, this way we can integrate art into people’s everyday lives”, says Fintan.
The Mural Social Club Festival is organized by NGO Sky Art Foundation and Dmytro Palienko, curated by Oleg Sosnov and Julia Ostrovska.
International Charity Foundation “Ukraine! I am for you!” was created in April, 2007. For 6 years it granted charity aid worth over 10 mln. UAH and provided material assistance in the amount of 3.5 mln. UAH.
