An artistic view of Russian aggression: an exhibition dedicated to the war in Ukraine was held in Warsaw
In the central part of the Polish capital, the works of more than 40 artists from around the world, whose paintings were dedicated to Russian aggression in Ukraine, were exhibited.
A similar theme has become the cornerstone of the works exhibited in the section of the Violity website "Painting and graphics. Author's sculpture". Among more than 21 thousand active lots, users buy and sell works dedicated to the war in Ukraine.
The exhibition featured art objects created during the period of active invasion and hostilities on the territory of Ukraine. Paintings, graphics, installations, sculptures, photographs and videos document the events of recent months in Irpin, Bucha, Gostomel, Kharkov, Kyiv, Lisichyansk and other cities.
One of the installations is a portrait of a young conscript who is shaved bald before being sent to the army. Its author is Ilya Isupov from Kiev. Nikolai Matsenko from Cherkasy presented two works in a "heraldic" design. For example, his "History of Maritime Law" is a composition related to the lawlessness that Russians are doing in the Black and Azov Seas.
Victor Pokidanets from Nikolaev presented a hole cut in a Russian book for storing edged weapons. Here he drew a parallel between the Kremlin's brutal propaganda and the lives of millions of Ukrainians.

All the works of the exhibitors are a collective experience of loss of home, loved ones, grief, anxiety, fear and hatred. Nevertheless, it is also an experience of collective certainty of victory.
