Robert “3D” Del Naja of legendary British trip-hop collective Massive Attack is the latest artist to come to the aid of Ukraine. Widely accredited as a pioneer of graffiti art in their home town of Bristol, 3D are currently running a 14-day sale of a new art print, with all proceeds going to the Disasters Emergency Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal Committee (DEC).
The latest print, due out tomorrow, joins another work that 3D has been selling for the past week, which has since raised over £110,000. Emblematic of its stance against a number of social issues, 3D expressed its solidarity with the people of Ukraine amid the Russian invasion. In response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the war, the artist criticized the British government’s response to the growing number of refugees, posting several photos on Instagram showing the Ukrainian flag, with the following message: “DON’T WAVE FLAGS / WAVE VISAS.
The upcoming print features the national colors of Ukraine prominently blended into the 3D collage-like abstraction. Measuring approximately 27 x 27 inches, the archival pigment print will be available to purchase for £150 GBP / $195 USD via Fire Sale from tomorrow March 15 at 6am EST until March 22, 2022.
