AKM (Kalashnikov's Automatic Rifle) is an assault rifle designed by Soviet small arms designer Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1959. (...) It is the most widespread variant of the entire AK series of firearms and has found widespread use in most member states of the former Warsaw Pact and its African and Asian allies, and is exported and manufactured in many other countries.
Used (in Ukraine) for training and by the reserve army. Also seen on the front used by volunteers.

On February 24th 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine.

In the days that followed, President Zelenskyj called on the population
to arm themselves and direct resistance. Guns were distributed to the volunteers . These civilians were then trained so they could fight for the freedom of Ukraine.

Ephemeral Marks
A  study of the relationship between mark making and the limitations of time.
For a long time now I have been fascinated by the ephemeral nature and what impression we try to leave behind to make us imortal. What started out as contemplation soon became a contentious dialogue of mark making on canvas, leaving only a sense of what could have been and the possibilities of parallel realities.
