Break the Circle
Sasha Korban: The best safeguard against domestic violence is the confidence of women in their unconditional value and dignity. And now in Mykolaiv, Ukraine you can see my new mural “Embrace yourself”, that reminds: every woman deserves happiness.
The image of a fragile girl gently hugging her shoulders refers to a psychological method used in therapy for women who have experienced domestic violence. This simple action helps you to feel safe and regain contact with your body.
The mural has created with support of UNFPA Ukraine as a part of an information campaign “Break the Circle” in collaboration with Sky Art Foundation. Its creation is timed to the worldwide campaign “16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence”. Embrace yourself and your loved ones. And remember, that you deserve to be respected and to be happy simply because you exist.
Finding a good balance in life
Sasha Korban: This mural supports the idea of finding a good balance in life. The young fragile girl reflects the human’s internal harmony together with the joy of existence. A bunch of chairs is a metaphor for the world’s chaos and the diversity of different moments we all go through – positive, tragic, happy and sad. They make us balance and find the harmony. The project is organized by International Human Rights Organization Truth Hounds
Sasha Korban: It is the fourth year of war in my country. There are thousands of broken hearts and lost beloved ones, ruined families, injured bodies and souls. Milana is a six-year-old girl who faced the war three years ago. But she was stronger than any war. Her little and yet brave heart conquered everything. I have dedicated my piece to Milana as I do believe she is a real symbol of the true hope.
Harmony and Balance
Sasha Korban: With this symbolic artwork I have been trying to show an importance of the harmony and balance in everything, and most importantly to find it inside oneself.
