Support for Ukraine – Art on Sale

Born in Ukraine and have been working as a professional artist for the last 10 years, ever since I graduated from UWE, Bristol UK. Painting has always been my passion, but I have also experimented with video installation, winning the Michael Barnard Award for one of my pieces. 


If you have been moved by the Ukraine situation and would like to be signposted to an artist, who I know, she is selling her art with proceeds to her family in the Ukraine directly affected by War. She is based in Bristol and any questions about shipping or her work please contact her or leave a message for Sophie at sophiecoopers@yahoo.co.uk

If you have an events space which would like to buy or hire the pictures, please make contact. Many Thanks. Preferably UK based, however we are open to suggestions for getting the word out there about this great opportunity to support an artist with family in Ukraine.

Bristol, the Ukraine, Russia, Russell Universities and China

How many steps are we away from enabling defence research to be used by China in conflicts like the Ukraine. Probably three, four or so. Our University tops the rich list of beneficiaries from Chinese military linked university students studying in Bristol.

I helped a Chinese PhD student today learn how to catch the bus. When the 76 went past her. I said to her. You have to stick your arm out more assertively or even both… Like this.
