Ukraine & Russia Conflicts

Tally mark poster seen glued onto a rundown concrete wall outdoors.

The geo-political conflicts between Russia and Ukraine have been ongoing for several years. February 24th, 2022 marks a point of escalation, as Russian troops invaded Ukraine. Since then, countless lives have been lost, and millions more have been displaced.

Used by the Russian military to mark their vehicles, the Z has become a symbol of the war. For this poster, it was constructed using tally marks which continue to bleed into the background, similar to the growing number of deaths. This was done to evoke a sense of urgency in regards to the ongoing humanitarian crisis.
