Human Being

Some images of this project are available as prints and stickers.

Golden apple. Zeus held a banquet in celebration of the marriage of Peleus and Thetis. Eris, the goddess of discord, was not invited for her troublesome nature, and upon turning up uninvited, she threw a golden apple into the ceremony, with an inscription that read: «for/to the most beautiful». Three goddesses claimed the apple: Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. They brought the matter before Zeus. Not wanting to get involved, Zeus assigned the task to Paris of Troy. We all know what had ahppened next…

Selfie. This artwork depicts a bird gesture which symbolizes human desire to look good for others. The peacock feather is a symbol of vanity in many cultures around the world. One of hands is decorated with a conteprorary jewellery to emphasis a fact that selfie is a present days social phenomenon. The fire in the root of a conmposition shows the agony of making a realy good selfie.

Individuality. Sometimes you can feel like a squashed tomato but who knows what can a squashed tomato become in future with a strong will for self-fulfillment. Even if you feel like a squashed tomato know that you still can shine bright like a diamond.

Truth. This piece is about fake news and double standards that surround us with people lies. Poppis are a symbol of peace and here they hide a gun. Human hands ends with an explosion and smoke that symbolises all wars and conflicts where people die.

Civilisation 02. The image depicts the human civilisation wich is concentrated on trends and being a customer. The smoke is a result of explodion in every hot point on the Earth where people are dying every day. The mallow flowers are very common in my homeland Ukraine where one of a hot point is located. Bones depict a death which we bring everywhere with our steps. Rooster feathers were used in many cultures to decorate hair-dos and clothing which is a metaphor of our desire to cover problems and crimes.

Civilisation 01. The image depicts the human civilisation wich covers our crimes and blood on our hands with gold. Column symbolises the highest achievemnts of the Western culture. Dead fish in a plastic bag shows our consumer attitude to everything around.
