The Italian artist Millo sent us the pictures of his new wall made on the juvenile penitentiary in Kremenchuk, Ukraine. The mural is named ‘Power of Imagination’ and is made for the project named Back to School Ukraine.
The wall is located in Kremenchuck on the juvenile penitentiary that hosts around 40 teenagers from 14 to 22 years old. The penitentiary is a special place for education and everyday life where there is a strong belief and desire to help these teenagers in the process of their growth and adaptation to the adult life.
The Back to School Ukraine project is devoted to children and has the aim to create murals in schools, nursery schools, institutes and even in juvenile penitentiaries. The goal is to bring art to children who live in remote corners of Ukraine and are experiencing poverty, war or detention. The project is curated by Seth Land and Oleg Sosnov, with the support of UNICEF Ukraine and Sky Art Foundation.
Power of Imagination
The power of imagination is the key to never stop dreaming and encouraging the development of our own potential. It is the force that guides us to follow our inner dreams and having trust in the possibilities of life. I created this wall with the aim of giving hope and strength to all of those who are living a difficult journey.
