‘Victory’ by Zakhar Shlimakov
Shlimakov lives in Minsk, Russia and explains that “In my country time is frozen — government and so many people, are still living in the past in times when USSR won in the WW2. It’s a reason
why we have so many names, signs and toponyms with the «Victory» in it. We still living in the 1945. It’s a lettering from sign of the oldest cinema in the Minsk which name is «Victory» — Победа.”
Art-direction by Zakhar Shlimakou, lettering by Pavel Karpovich.
