Aza Nizi Maza is an art studio for children and adults, founded by Mykola and Maria Kolomyets in 2012
Before the war, the “AZA NIZI MAZA” studio is a creative and innovative art space. From the first day of the war, the “AZA NIZI MAZA” studio became a bomb shelter and a transfer point through which many people have already passed. There, underground, Mykola Kolomiets makes a poster diary “WHAT I SEE”, in which the works of the studio’s children are considered in the context of wartime. This project received a lot of attention in Ukraine and abroad.
“What I See“
If only I could sprout a seed of new life here, in exile, to bring back home and grow my house back from the ashes.

Sounds of explosions are louder than words.

A foe is flying ever higher, but we’ve
set his ass on fire.
