Borodyanka, Bucha, Irpin, Banksy & more graffiti tour
War is terrible, but somehow it often inspires creativity – at least in Ukraine that’s always been a land of creators. Banksy started supporting Ukraine since the very beginning of full scale rzzn aggression, and he came here after liberation of Kyiv region from the #russianfastists to leave his marks at some of the most memorable places of the war. Welcome to my tour to see some of his works outside of Kyiv – and also see some of the places there were in the news. Yes, you’ll see ruins and places of terrible tragedies. But we will concentrate on art and creativity, giving hope for better future. In addition to Banksy works, we’ll also see graffities of Italian creator TVBOY and also of some local authors. I’ll pick you up in your location and bring you back in the end. The tour will give you a great impression of the latest events in Ukraine plus lots of photos and videos.
