Zagrava — is an artbook by the artist Sergiy Maidukov, which documents the experiences from the beginning of February 2022, when there was talk of a major Russian invasion of Ukraine, until the mass shelling in May 2023.
Limited edition — 20 books. Each of them is a set that includes an artbook and an original graphic work, the author's replica by Sergiy Maidukov. The graphics are part of the overall visual plot in the artbook and, at the same time, one of them can become part of your collection. The format of the piece is A4.
In more than 50 illustrations, Sergiy Maidukov recreates the events of a year and a half of full-scale war, working with various media: pencil, ink, paper, tablet. The images of the author's weekly column for the German periodical Zeit Magazin became the basis of this artbook. It is also supplemented with black-and-white sketches and sketches that expand the story. This is how the drawings, which work with private reflection, turn into pages of a large-scale war: the first strikes on Kyiv, the defense of Bakhmut, the daily shelling of the country in the spring of 2023, and the changes taking place both in cities and people.
This artbook includes a conversation between journalist Oleksii Tarasov and Sergiy Maidukov, which is a kind of continuation of their dialogue from the first artbook KYIV by Sergyi Maidukov, published in 2021.
