What Is Ukraine?

DESCRIPTION I painted this after watching the news one night sometime after the Russo Ukranian War started. It was unsettling, to say the least, to watch the images of war followed by drug ads, car commercials, and other joyful promotions. It’s puzzling to see despair and joy flashed within seconds of each other. It is painful to imagine that there are joyous opportunists waiting to watch buildings burn. There are two black figures (death dealers) bringing death into a city while missiles drop down from above.” BIO Jason Flack is an “Urban Folk” expressionist, pop artist, community leader, speaker, and a native of Johnson City, Tennessee. His work has been heavily influenced by personal life experiences as well as many cartoons, comic books, and music. He has been drawing for over 30 years and painting for over 10. Jason has entrenched himself in an all-things-art lifestyle, being a part of local art advocacy and bridging the gap between self-taught and academia. He was called to start painting after the sudden death of his twin sister, Jessica, in 2010. His work elicits energy by using bright colors surrounded by bold black lines. Since the beginning, he has used painting as therapy to direct grief into movement and thoughtfulness and to hold a mirror up to society.
