“Ukraine’s leading video game producers and digital artists have created the NFT collection of avatars for Ukraine,” he said.

A total of 70 artists will take part in the auction on May 19, with the theme of reflecting on the war and “embodying the spirit of Ukraine in its struggle for existence,” according to the Avatars for Ukraine website.

“This is the face of my people at war,” Tarabanov said. “At its core, every work of art is an important part of the spirit, soul, wisdom, love and freedom of Ukraine.

Tarabanov said that a large collection of works of art from Ukraine focuses on the pre-war period, including the Soviet era and World War II. He emphasized the importance of separating digital artwork from the upcoming auction from all that has been seen in the past.

“Times are changing and that includes how art is produced,” he said. “This is a historic moment, just as the cartoon industry published special issues of Superman during the wartime. “I think the current war is, for the first time in history, when video games are actually helping people affected by the war in Ukraine.”
