Street Artist Paola Delfin finds shelter in Kiev, Ukraine 2016

Paola Delfin has just finished painting his mural in Kiev, Ukraine for the Art United Us project. Art United Us project unites two hundred artists through mural art and the promulgation of maintaining peace on Earth, and is curated by Geo Leros, Iryna Kanishcheva and Waone Interesni Kazki.

Paola Delfin’s huge black and white mural of a girl is named “Shelter”, here Paola explains his reasons…

“I believe besides any difficulty in life we all have a shelter to turn up to, I painted this wall thinking of that idea, I come from a country which is a beautiful place but is going trough some difficult moments, same as Ukraine, so no matter which kind of trouble are going on, there is always a place of peace, even if everything seems dark, I chose to paint this black and white and cut it in two pieces, because I believe beauty can present itself in the darkest moments, is just how we choose to see things, which can change it all, is a matter of perspective.” Paola Delfin
