Nikita and Camille Kravtsov. Armageddon

An exhibition of Nikita and Kamil Kravtsovs is held in the Port creative hub in Kiev.Armageddon". The exhibition includes works created specifically for this project and presented earlier in New York. These are collages, embroideries and paintings. For the first time, artists showed “Armageddon” in New York in 2017 in the gallery of Flux Factory, opening the exhibition on the Independence Day of Ukraine. The Ukrainian presentation of the project was in the Odessa gallery Invogue # Art in 2018.

The project repeats the plot of the prophecy of Armageddon of the book of Revelation and is built along the line of the struggle between the forces of evil and good. It begins with a series of illustrations of battles and leads to a panel on the theme of paradise. Scenes of battles made in the technique of collage. It is assembled from a variety of antique printing and therefore resembles engravings, in which epochs and styles are absurdly mixed. Paradise artists design from modern visual trash on the principle of "all the best at once."

“Seals, horses, angels in white slippers, all the creatures in a pair - a terrible kitsch. A paradise that you don’t want to be in, ”says Nikita Kravtsov.
