“NFTs for Ukraine” Featuring Bunker Art From The Front Lines To Support The Ukrainian People

The NFTs for Ukraine project was created by Jason Brahms, CEO of VideoGorillas, and local Los Angeles artist, Kelley Anderson, to help raise money for Ukraine. The event is being hosted at The Gall3ry by Kollectiff, a web3 innovation lab and venture studio located on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach, CA. The NFT collection includes artwork drawn by the children of Ukraine, art from a collective of established Ukrainian artists, and pieces created specifically for this event by local artist Kelley Anderson. The art from the children and the collective of established Ukrainian artists has been sourced and curated by Jason Brahms and Jeka Smolinska. 100% of the proceeds of this event go to benefit NOVA Ukraine.

Since 2015, Jason Brahms has been the CEO of a US-based Media Technology company Video Gorillas, where every member of his development team is Ukrainian, living and working in Kyiv. The attacks on Ukraine were personal and close to home for Jason, who learned of the invasion while on vacation with his neighbor, artist Kelley Anderson.

The pair decided at that moment to create a project that could achieve the following: raise money to be used for humanitarian aid in Ukraine; preserve the works of art by Ukrainian children and memorialize them in digital form; showcase and share the beautiful and rich Ukrainian art culture with the rest of the world, and share the realities of this war from the child’s perspective in hopes of inspiring people to take action to help end this war and support rebuilding efforts.

The exhibit will debut on April 8th with this launch event, and the artwork will be on display through April 13th by appointment only. All works will be available on OpenSea, made possible by support from Something Bigger, a Ukrainian-led philanthropic platform whose mission is to use tech to provide humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine.

100% of the proceeds from this exhibit will go to NOVA to support the Ukrainian people.
