Recently the well-known Ukrainian artist Sasha Korban has returned back from sunny Italy, where he was invited by the organizers of In Wall We Trust International Street Art Festival to paint a mural with the support of Sky Art Foundation.
He created his mural throughout five days in the picturesque town of Airola near Napoli. The title of the artwork is “Harmony” or “Balance”. Through this symbolic work, the artist wants to highlight the importance of harmony and balance in everything, and most importantly to find it inside oneself. It is important in life that everyone follows the golden rule not to be extreme, but to do what gives a feeling of happiness and pleasure in life.
“Personally, the participation in this project was an incredible experience, that is why I am thankful to the organizers for inviting me and offering the opportunity to create a mural in such a wonderful place. I am thankful as well to the citizens of Airola with whom I spoke each day and who impressed me by their positive energy, hospitality and delicious food” – Sasha Korban.
Sasha Korban was born on March 12, 1987 in Kirovske of Donetsk Region, Ukraine. In 2006-2011 he worked as a miner at “Komsomolets Donbasu”. He tried street art far back in 2002, but his career as urban artist started in 2009. His artworks represent characters and portraits. His pieces are characterized with different techniques and styles like photorealism, pop art, expressive conceptualism, etc. The creativity of Sasha Corbana is represented by Sky Art Foundation.
