Molotov Cocktail Art

Molotov Cocktail Art

Вечный Огонь (or Eternal Flame in English) is the name of an spectacular urban art installation in Yekaterinburg, Russia. To remind of fallen Soviet soldiers during World War II, an artist group burned the soldiers faces on wooden panels using Molotov Cocktails. The results are just great and are now part of an abandoned hospital.

It’s amazing to see, how weapons can be used in a unusual way to create art. The roughness, flames and burned faces are probably the best solution to visualise brutal war, for what reason these unique Molotov Cocktail artworks are in my eyes a good way to commemorate…
