'Borders of the Land' 2023.  


The painting is inspired by the rural landscape of his homeland, where he often spent his childhood exploring the fields and coast. The painting depicts a serene and idyllic scene of nature, with distance fields, lush trees and a clear blue sky. However, the painting also contains a hidden narrative of the Ukraine War, a conflict that has been raging since February 2022. Using subtle clues and symbols to hint at the violence and turmoil that is happening across the country's borders.  He contrasts the peaceful countryside with man's propensity for destruction, and shows how fragile borders can be in times of war. The painting is a commentary on the current state of the world, and a reminder of the beauty and value of nature.
