Czech street art artist Dmitrij Proškin (ChemiS) launched a charitable sale of printouts of his last mural.
The mural features a young girl sheltering iconic soft toy characters of various nations, including the USA’s Mickey Mouse, France’s Obelix, the Czech Republic’s Little Mole, the German’s bee Maya, Polish Leolek and Bolek, Finnish Moomins, French Obelix, and the British Gromit, under a Ukrainian flag.
The message, Proskin says, is that Ukraine is currently protecting the rest of the world from “disaster.”
The print in A3+ format with the autograph of the author costs 2500 CZK.
All the money raised will be used to help Ukrainian children. The author will choose a specific charity program in the next weeks.
To purchase the print you need to write to the artist through personal messages on Facebook or Instagram.
ChemiS is one of the Czech Republic’s most renowned street artists and has created murals across the world.
In 2011 he created a mural of Vaclav Havel, shortly after the president’s death, and in 2018 one of the country’s first president, T.G. Masaryk, on the centenary of the birth of Czechoslovakia.
