Ukrainian artist turns abandoned Russian vehicle into resistance art in temporarily occupied city
Ukrainian artist Maksym Kilderov, who lives in temporarily Russian-occupied town of Nova Kakhovka, turned the abandoned armored personnel carrier into an art object.
“In a city where you can’t get canvas, burned tanks are the best canvas,” Kilderov said.
He turned his art into NFT-leaflets, the proceeds of which go to his volunteer headquarters.
Nova Kakhovka is temporarily occupied since the first day of the war. Maksym Kilderov says he was a little scared to work on the APC for fear of reprisal by Russian troops, but at the end of the day, he’s an artist, and he must make art.
“That’s my way to communicate. That’s my way to show what’s inside me,” he said.
