Ukraine: The Unfortunate Bride
I chose the image of Yulia Tymoshenko to represent the country of Ukraine and dressed her up as the Ukrainian Bride between two warring suitors – President Obama and President Putin. On the right of the painting, President Obama kneeling and proposing to Ukraine- the Bride with engagement ring in his right hand while holding Yulia (Ukraine) hand with his left hand. The left arm of Yulia was ripped off from her body by Putin. The ripped off arm is Crimea and other regions of Ukraine under the control of Pro-Russian Separatists with the help of Russia.I put an arm band of the old USSR on Putin’s arm to reveal Putin’s mindset which is to regain lost glory of the old USSR by taking back all the countries that used to be under USSR.
In the middle ground of the painting are the powerless UN officials that could do nothing than shooting “mouth missiles” and “rhetoric rockets” to Russia for tearing apart Ukraine while the people of Ukraine are being slaughtered.
To have peace in the world, America and Russia have to stop meddling in the affairs of other countries.
