About Our Auction

Lviv based Iconart Gallery approached several leading Ukrainian contemporary icon painters to create works for an auction “Icon saves lives – Ukraine” with raised funds to be donated to "Завжди Україна" (“Always Ukraine”) Charitable Foundation https://www.facebook.com/zavzhdyua. This project will be realized by Ukraine House together with Artfira Gallery through an art auction and exhibition to be held at Ukraine house during February 2 to February 24, 2023.
Presented are contemporary icons created by 20 artists on boards that were removed from ammunition crates – real ammunition crates from real war that is going on now in Ukraine.
These icons not only reflect on emotions of an individual witnessing the war but also represent the faith, hope and strength to overcome this calamity as a group – one unified Ukrainian nation.
The following artists have created and donated (100% to be donated to cause) the icons: Lyuba Yatskiv, Uliana Krekhovets, Kateryna Kuziv, Yaroslava Tkachuk, Olya Kravchenko, Natalya Rusetska, Hlafira Shcherbak, Oksana Andrushchenko, Iryna Solonynka, Tetyana Skoromna, Ivan Dashko, Taras Keb, Roman Barabakh, Lidiya Yakobchuk,  Khrystyna Kvyk, Alina Hrubets, Olga Kovtun, Andriy Kovalenko,  Vlodko Kaufman, Sergiy Radkevych.
