Shana Nys Dambrot I have seen this photograph in my art and social feeds, it has gone a bit viral and that is very well deserved. I am thrilled to be able to support it here. The perfect use of art history to tell a more full, profound story of the ages old epic of love and war. Slava Unkraini. Klimt would be proud.
Andrey Kezzyn and Ksenya Kazimirova’s (Dress designer and details) reimagining of Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss tells the tale of two lovers separated by the Russian war in Ukraine. The real story: Before the invasion, Yulia and Yuri had just moved into a new flat. They were doing repair works and preparing their six-year-old daughter for her first year of school. The war turned their lives upside down. Today, Yulia spends her days driving between Lyiv and Kharkiv, crowdfunding and providing the military with cars, radios, food and medicine. Yuri has joined the defence army.
