Олег Сенцов: Detail.

So much detail is lost when publishing on the web, hopefully this close-up will give you a better idea of the marks I make with the dried up stubs of marker pens dipped in a sticky pot of India Ink. There’s the flick, and scrape of an old toothbrush as well in there somewhere. Part of my portrait of Ukrainian film director Oleh Sentsov, who the Russians recently locked up for 20 years.

The Prisoners.

The Prisoners.Acclaimed film director Oleh Sentsov, and student activist Oleksandr Kolchenko are the latest additions to a growing list of Ukrainian citizens incarcerated by Putin sycophants for crimes they did not commit. On 25 August 2015, Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years, and Kolchenko to 10 years of imprisonment by a Russian court.
