Travel Sketchbook Ukraine


In Travel Sketchbook Ukraine Kees de Groot van Embden takes us on a journey to Ukraine, three weeks after the war started. Propelled by the seriousness of the moment he picks up his brushes, and travels to the capital Kyiv, which is under siege and is threatened to be surrounded by the Russians. He portrays a ‘block post’ in Zythomyr, where civilians take up tasks of the army in the defense of their country. Here is a selection of his paintings. See and read the the whole story here.
