The famous French actress Eva Green, who played the lead role in the film Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, reminded the world of Russia's crimes in an original way. In the last photo, the star posed in a scarf from the joint collection of UNITED24 and OLIZ "Stolen Art", which she tied around her neck.
This is not just an accessory but a tribute to the Ukrainian artist Polina Rayko, who painted for only 6 years during her lifetime but went down in the history of contemporary Ukrainian art. The photo appeared on the actress's page.
At the age of 69, a resident of the now-occupied village of Oleshky in the Kherson region picked up a paintbrush and turned her house into a work of art, with no experience whatsoever.
Until the age of 75, she gave Ukraine drawings that were admired and admired, and after the artist died in 2004, her house was turned into a museum. All the walls and ceiling inside were painted with fantastic images of animals and plants.
The artist's work was also admired far abroad, but the ruthless Russians destroyed the house by blowing up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station.
"Here, her dreams came to life on the walls, with amazing animals and fabulous plants of incredible beauty. After the artist's death, a museum was opened in her house. On June 6, 2023, the Russians blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, and the house was flooded with water. Most of the paintings were lost forever. Eva, thank you for helping us tell the world the truth and reminding people of Russia's crimes," UNITED24 said in a statement.
Some of the Ukrainian artist's drawings were transferred to fabric to immortalize them. You can buy a similar scarf for 4,500 hryvnias, or 6,500 hryvnias for those who want to scale the artist's work on a meter-by-meter canvas.
As you know, Eva Green has been working with UNITED24 and supporting Ukrainians since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion.
