Back to School Ukraine is curated by French artist Julien Malland aka Seth Globepainter and Oleg Sosnov, Mural Social Club, with the support of UNICEF Ukraine and Sky Art Foundation. The project is dedicated to the mural art in schools, kindergartens and other locations, related with children or education, in socially vulnerable zones.
France based street-artist Juan-Pablo de Ayguavives aka Popay was invited to paint the last mural for Back to School! Ukraine on a school building in Chernigiv.
The brightly coloured mural depicts an urban landscape that personally reflects the artist’s impressions about Paris and the Ukrainian town Chernihiv. High-rise buildings, highways with cars, trees and citizens became the heroes of the new mural. It’s a successful mix between the urban landscape of Paris and Chernigiv. The mural was painted to inspire children to travel … or at least in their own imagination.
“Well that’s it. The best wall of my life” Popay
Project was supported by Chernihiv City Council, French Embassy / French Institute in Ukraine and Sky Art Foundation.
