Since the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine, curiosity about the often politically charged Ukrainian literature is growing too. The long struggle for independence still has a major impact on their literature. People outside the country are getting aware of this. This is also the case in Flanders, where there is a search for Dutch translations.
I really love the moment when everything comes together. The idea, the little fist, the national Ukrainian colors, the black background and last but not least, the simplicity… All of these elements make the illustration even stronger.
