In the wake of the ongoing war in Ukraine, artists from around the world feel compelled to help the citizens of the embattled country. Pioneering paper quilling artist Yulia Brodskaya has recently launched a fundraiser to support the charities working in Ukraine. To do so, she’s auctioning off one of her incredible paper art pieces. Titled Sunflowers, it utilizes meticulously arranged paper to recreate a colorful bouquet in the dominant hues of blue and yellow—the colors of the Ukrainian flag.
Brodskaya is hosting this auction completely online, which allows anyone in the world to own one of her original pieces. The starting bid for Sunflowers is $2,224, and anyone can submit their offer by emailing Brodskaya and mentioning “sunflowers” in the email subject. Bidding is happening until April 16, 2022, at which point she’ll email everyone who has participated with the current highest bid. They will then have the opportunity to submit their best and final offer until April 20. (This amount does not include shipping.)
Check out some of the delicious details from Brodskaya’s work below—including a video of how she put the piece together. It gives you an idea of how meticulous the paper-quilling process is.
