“Our company and employees do everything possible to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine with technical equipment and material support. But we do not stop and continue to support our defenders. So, we decided to put up for auction paintings by contemporary Ukrainian artists that decorated our office to help buy cars for the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that are now in the war zone. I am grateful to all the partners who joined the initiative. Together – to victory!”.
Leonid Komskyi, co-founder of the auction house “Dukat” notes:
“We have been holding auctions for about fifteen years, but this is the first time we have partnered with the IT community. We can say that this is our first “art-IT-collaboration”. We pass on 20 works by outstanding Ukrainian artists from our house and artist friends. Contemplation of art heals and fills, and by holding such an art auction, art also saves lives and helps our soldiers win as soon as possible!”.
Charity project “Art for victory” is aimed at promoting contemporary Ukrainian art and encourages you to add works by outstanding Ukrainian artists to your private collections, and thereby – help the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The auction-exhibition will be held from December 8 to 15, 2022, in the “Dukat” gallery at the address: Volodymyrska street, 5, Kyiv city. The final auction will be held on December 15, 2022 at 20:00 in the “Dukat” gallery with an online broadcast (including the ability to place bets online).
