A Better Place For Everyone

by: Anna Vershinina, Chernigiv, Ukraine

Different tools BUILD cities. Different people build worlds.

Artist Statement

My artwork is inspired by ancient Ukrainian carpets. In the center is the tree of life, and beneath it are people of different nationalities. We are all different – with different views, different beliefs, different professions – but each of us wants to be understood. We all need to feel our importance in this world.
