Description of the artwork «FACE CORRUPTION (The Face of Corruption)»

to create a portrait used wrappers of 20 kilograms of sweets produced by the factory Roshen.

The artists managed to form Poroshenko's face from the wrappers, and the background they created from sleeves that look like chocolate bars.

The authors intended to remind the president of his business, calling the guarantor "the chocolate king."

“There is a feeling that they offered us a sweet, but gave us nothing. It is also a symbol of business ... business is our president’s priority, ”said Marchenko.

The artist stressed that the wrappers symbolize the empty promises that Poroshenko made at the very beginning of his presidential cadence.

“Behind we see the country in a state of war, a country filled with coffins, while the president lives sweetly under any circumstances,” the artist noted.
