This series has previously been exhibited in museums and galleries in Basel, The Hague, Cairo, New York, Texas and Miami, and now these works are being shown for the first time in Ukraine to support the country during the war.

Max Vityk: “When I was working on the Warriors of Light series, I thought about the people I saw in Kyiv during the revolution: open, friendly, recklessly brave, naive and pure, almost like children. Color plays an important role in the cycle – I wanted to transfer the explosive emotions experienced on the Maidan to the canvas, filling the space around us with the energy of color explosions. Now, after the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, these works have acquired new meanings and even greater relevance for me. I understood that I had to show them here, at home – in Ukraine.”


The exhibition will be open from October 2 to 30.
