Ministry of Culture and Information of Ukraine, MetaHistory and Depositphotos, a global content
marketplace, has partnered with seven Ukrainian artists to create a series of thematic NFT artworks for sale
as part of an effort to preserve and revitalize Ukraine's culture. Each illustration translates a unique,
artistic vision of how some of the destroyed sites could look like in the future.
artists, we developed a main concept for each of the five NFT artworks to reflect on those places that evoke
specific memories. These artworks serve not only as a source of inspiration and hope, but also as a way to
raise awareness and funds for the restoration and protection of these important cultural landmarks in in
Mykolaiv, Mariupol, Donetsk, Luhansk and Odessa under the concept of “Shared Reality”.
childhood, we always considered cultural buildings and sights to be untouchable. It was forbidden to climb
on them, as well as talk loudly or rest near them, — such an attitude towards monuments was considered
shameful. For many children, these rules became a personal challenge — and they would do anything to climb
the monument or skate down the stairs of the theatre.
We decided to create remarkable places where
one can not just observe a statue in silence, but gather with their friends and create something new as
people’s presence and interaction is the main condition for the successful reconstruction of Ukraine.
