Putin's War in Ukraine - The Cost of Lies - Julian Julinu Mallia Political Illustration Art

On a long enough timeline, lies, half-truths and aggression backfire.

I’m not usually publicly vocal about multi-layered political situations. But I also have no sympathy for despots, delusional soviet union fossils and enablers.

Art can’t do much in the face of military tanks and tragic humanitarian crises. But it allows for the articulation of abstract concepts that go beyond the immediate reality. Maybe that can come in handy.

“The Cost of Lies” was also shared by graphic design legend Stefan Sagmeister and longlisted at the World Illustration Awards 2023.
