Tears of War – Ukraine 5 Part Series

Tears of War

Artwork by Alicia Chang
Music: J.S. Bach Double (3) from Partita No.1 in B minor played by Joyce Lai

When I embarked on doing art for this series, I learned that Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine. They are farmed and are a staple of Ukrainian society. They are a symbol of peace, and have become a symbol of resistance and support. Thinking about all the men, fathers and brothers who had to stay behind to help with the war, I came up with this image with the men at war and the sunflower crying.

“Nothing but sorrow comes out of war… there is only destruction…”
~ Vincent Van Gogh
