Artistic duo pays tribute to fallen soldiers with a series of paintings on ammo box lids
Ukrainian artists Oleksandr Klymenko and Sonia Atlantova have presented their project “Icons on ammo box lids” in the capital of Ukraine. The series of paintings is dedicated to the memory of the fallen soldiers of the Territorial Defense Brigade of Kyiv and the Kyiv region. Each icon has its own image and metaphor that conveys the memories and impressions of the artists from their communication with the participants of the hostilities. These iconostases, depicted on the hard surfaces of ammo box lids, provide mobility and the ability to reach a wide audience. The exhibition of these artworks will be presented at St. Sophia Cathedral in May. The project of Oleksandr Klymenko and Sonia Atlantova is yet another way of honoring the memory and showing respect for the soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the fight for peace and security in Ukraine.
Ukrainian artists create iconostases on ammo box lids to honor the memory of fallen soldiers.
Yesterday, in the capital of Ukraine, at the Sophia of Kiev, a presentation of an interesting project by the art duo Alexander Klymenko and Sonia Atlantova took place. Their work “Icons on Ammo Boxes” is a series of paintings dedicated to the memory of fallen soldiers from the Territorial Defense Brigades (TRO) of Kyiv and Kyiv region.
The project, which was presented at the presentation, consists of several icons created on the surfaces of ammo boxes. These iconostases, depicted on the hard surfaces of the boxes, provide mobility and the ability to reach a wide audience. Each icon has its own image and metaphor that conveys the artists’ memories and impressions of communicating with participants in combat operations.
The exhibition of these artworks will be presented at the Sophia Cathedral in May. The opening date of the exhibition has not yet been announced, but the project organizers assure that they will inform about it in advance.
The initiative of the art duo found a response among many visitors who believe that such works help to preserve the memory of important events in the history of Ukraine, as well as of fallen soldiers. They can also be used for education and creating new informational materials that reflect the life and activities of TRO soldiers.
Ukraine is a country where many people have great respect for the military who protect our country and our peace. Alexander Klymenko and Sonia Atlantova’s project is another way to honor the memory and show respect for the soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the fight for peace and security in Ukraine.
Art has always been an important aspect of our culture, as well as a means of reflecting and reproducing the history of our country. Alexander Klymenko and Sonia Atlantova’s project is a vivid example of how art can be used to reflect important historical events and remember them.
The exhibition, which will be presented in the Sofia Cathedral, will be interesting and informative not only for art experts but also for everyone who is interested in the history and culture of Ukraine. The icons on the boxes made from cartridge cases not only showcase the artistic talent of Oleksandr Klymenko and Sonya Atlantova but also provide an opportunity to feel the depth and significance of the events they depict.
We must remember our heroes who dedicated their lives to fighting for our country. The project of Oleksandr Klymenko and Sonya Atlantova helps us preserve this memory and honor their sacrifices. It gives each of us the opportunity to understand that these people were true heroes who did everything possible to protect our country from aggressors.
Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the fallen heroes – Glory, Glory, Glory!
