0 THE 5,000-cartridges PORTRAIT OF VLADIMIR PUTIN by UKRAINIAN ARTIST Dariya Marchenko

Ukrainian artist Dariya Marchenko created her portrait piece called, The Face of War, of Vladimir Putin made from empty bullet cartridges – 5,000 to be exact. All collected from the frontline of the conflict between the Ukranian army and pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine.

Ms Marchenko’s story and those of others who helped her in collecting the shells are told in a novel which will be presented along with the portrait. “Philosophic symbolism” is how she describes her art interpretation where every element has its hidden meaning – the cartridges representing human life that has been brutally ended.
