On February 24, 2022, I woke up at 5 am to the sound of explosions and my life was divided into before and after. It turned out that while I lived peacefully in my Ukraine, engaged in art, created cartoons, planned the future and spoke Russian - in neighboring Russia inflamed hatred for Ukraine, hatred for Ukrainian language, appropriated the culture of Ukraine and denied the very existence of the Ukrainian nationality and called the people who speak Ukrainian in Ukraine - Nazis. Just imagine - the Russians started bombing the cities of my Ukraine and killing Ukrainians to save me and Ukrainians like me who speak Russian language from imaginary "Ukrainian Nazis". I speak two languages, Russian and Ukrainian, but now I want to forget Russian, because the people who kill my Ukraine speak Russian and believe that we are fraternal peoples only because of a common language. I have never been too patriotic, I just love my country and I want it to develop and have a worthy place among the civilized countries of the world. I have never hated the Russians, but since February 24 there has been an abyss between us that will not be overcome by ten generations of our peoples.
The painting "Free Ukraine" is my sincere wish. The first week of the war I could not eat anything, could not sleep and could not create anything. And then I came across Giorgione painting "Judith" and started working on the painting "Free Ukraine". It helped me get out of the abyss of military depression.
Now I want to talk about the symbols of this picture.
In the background of the picture is a view of Kyiv from Volodymyrska Hill Park - a park built in honor of Prince Volodymyr the Great, who baptized Kievan Rus and whose coat of arms later became the coat of arms of all of Ukraine. I often walk in this park and I took the landscape of Kyiv from one of my photos. The yellow and blue flag of Ukraine symbolizes the yellow wheat field and the blue sky.
In the center of the picture, a female figure is Ukraine, on her head is a wreath - the national Ukrainian headdress, in which I used two colors - black and red. These colors are from the revolutionary flag of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, where black is the Ukrainian chernozem and red is the blood shed for Ukraine. Her clothes are embroidered shirts based on national costumes, but modernized. Under the left foot of Ukraine Putin's severed head. Putin's head has no eyes, because eyes are a mirror of the soul, and Putin has no soul. I hope my painting will be prophetic.
