Nature, Migration and Me | Vasyl Kovalenko

The project Nature, Migration and Me proposes an anti-stress coloring book that contains stylized images of animals, on the background of abstract compositions. The book brings into discussion the subject of the animals that are found in war zones, of the pets that have migrated with their owners or have been abandoned and recurred to local migrations for survival. 

While art can become a form of therapy, the proposed compositions reiterate the fact that humans are a part of nature, and its balance and harmony is directly influenced by the environment.

The book launch will take place between 6 - 8 October, on the occasion of City Celebration, one of the main events of the national programme „Timișoara - European Capital of Culture in 2023”. We will be back soon with more details about the event.
