My portraits disclose the inconsistencies of social and political masquerade. During a residency in Donbass I injured the face of the President of Ukraine and also that of the President of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic. I only wanted to devaluate their nationalistic orientations. But soon after, one of them actually died, as if by an act of voodoo.
