Lev Shalimov, aged 12 from Odessa, Ukraine, collaborated with his new friend Lisa, aged 14 from Krivoj Rog. Both teenagers fled the war in Ukraine and found a new home in Sweden. Upon entering the studio of the Swedish artist Ludmila Christeseva, they discovered hope and optimism within the spectrum of colors.
The canvas resonates with children’s prayers, wishing for an end to war. The proceeds are dedicated to directly supporting these young artists.
