Europe’s Street Artists Slam Putin’s War In Ukraine

This article in Forbes magazine shows several examples of street art that has been created in the last couple of weeks to protest against the war in Ukraine. These are only a sample, and I'm sure there are many others in Europe, and further away. Street art is a great way to bring art to the people, and say something to them at the same time. 

TU Dublin Library in Grangegorman has an impressive collection of books on street art as a phenomenon, and as art books in their own right. street art is now worldwide, and even a tourist attraction in some places. 

Ireland even has a few examples of its own. A mural entitled 'Love Ukraine' located at Lock 6 in Dublin was created to raise awareness and support about the war in Ukraine, as well as raise funds for the Red Cross. 

This link to our library catalogue shows a list of such books that may inspire local artists. Check it out.
