LVIV CHOCOLATE CAFÉ | Kharkiv, ukraine | Dameged.2022

Artwork Story

The Assumption Cathedral is reflected in the broken glass of Lviv handmade chocolaterie and cafe which sustained substantial damages in central Kharkiv, Ukraine, on March 25 as a result of Russian illegal invasion of Ukraine. 

Since the original image of the damaged cafe did not have any interiors, I’ve been researching on all the news and social media outlets which might have had the original images of the cafe and various celebrations in that venue for about a month in order to find better quality photos. I’ve also used the Tripadvisor and Google to access and study all the contents available from the cafe interior objects before the damage in order to have a better understanding of what I was planning to draft. I ended up with many images and lots of beautiful stories of this cafe which was really painful and sad. First, I’ve added a Ukraine flag on the reflection of the church on the window and that was  the start of my journey to make this painful and yet inspiring artwork.
