ArtUnitedUs using Street Art to Promote Peace across the World

ArtUnitedUs is a world-wide initiative to promote peace, an international project that collaborates through artistic and creative mediums with communities to raise public awareness and attention to the problem of war, aggression and violence. 200 walls will be painted during the next 2 years, starting from Ukraine and without boundaries around the world.

Propaganda of aggression, information war and brainwashing generate tension all over the world. Today, the struggle for peace is urgent once again. We want to unite and direct the forces of creation to solve this global issue, which came to our doorstep unexpectedly and cost thousands of lives. ArtUnitedUs

This project is not just about producing a series of murals, but instead, creating an entirely new history. Art has been used as a great weapon throughout history, this initiative is current and promoting peace, and in the worlds of ArtUniteUs… save the world.

The project has already started in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine with street artist Rustam Qbic. Rustam has painted Labyrinth. The mural depicts a character wearing a crown shaped like a labyrinth over his head who guided by scarab beetle compass, tries to find a way out of a massive maze of life challenges. The mural reflects on the meaning of this journey, a journey we all undertake at some point in our lives.

This is a fantastic challenge and a great initiative. Lets give peace a chance to save the world.
