CHARITY AUCTION 01 / 19032022
The first charity auction by XRONOLAB aims to support people affected in Ukraine after the military actions by Putin's regime, that have started on February 24, 2022. We are donating 100% of the premium from the auction to UNICEF Ukraine.

The auction consists of 55 Lots, split into two parts.

Part I represents the lots by Russian or Belarus-born artists, who would like to declare that the war has been started against their will, and they support peace. Some artworks are published as NO NAME in order to protect the artists and their families from persecution by security offices of Putin's regime.

Part II represents Ukraine-born artists, who have been traveling through Europe and have been working among others in Russia. They are appreciated and collected by Russians, proving that there is no place for national and ethnic disputes.

There is no place for separation and militarisation in the art world. We stand together for a united artistic community. #makeartnotwar

GELYA PISAREVA (*1933) survived the Leningrad blockade and were evacuated to Ukraine in its closing days. In Ukraine, Gelya lived at her grandmother’s and was very popular among the local inhabitants for her drawing talent. On her return to Leningrad, she studied sculpture and graduated from the Tavrichesky Art School. In 1961 Gelya enrolled in the sculpture department of the Repin Institute. The strict academic education did not manage to impose a practical manner to Gelya; she has always been into ‘people’s art’. She took her inspiration from the collection of folk art, icon painting and traveling to the Russian North.
