Illustrating War for Children: Romana Romanyshyn / Picture Book Creator, Art Studio Agrafka *RERUN
Ukrainian picture book creator Romana Romanyshyn co-founded the art studio "Agrafka." Despite the 2022 Russian invasion, she remains in her homeland to communicate the truth of war through her works.
Romanyshyn set up art studio "Agrafka" in 2009 with Andriy Lesiv, her creative partner since university.
Their picture book, "How War Changed Rondo," which was influenced by Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and the war that followed, was highly acclaimed inside and outside Ukraine. First published in 2015, it is receiving renewed attention since the 2022 invasion.
Since the February 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, air raid sirens have become a familiar sound.
