This artwork was made as a tribute to the war between Ukraine and Russia. This is how the artist writes about the work: “I concentrated more on the struggle between the different voices and opinions of the people involved. I used a sinking ship as a metaphor, and its oil or blood as a being that pollutes rulers’ decisions, represented by a giant gull holding a strand of sea monster hair in its mouth. The sea monster represents forced civilians. to become a weapon in the name of peace, but thanks to the green speck at the end of the tail, it has a strong bloom in hope. In the background, the small gulls outlined in red represent the ongoing toll of this conflict”.
