Moments of War by Mariusz Kozik

Wars have always existed. So many human civilizations, so much people fight among themselves. No matter how scary it sounds, but the war is not only the horror but also delight, indescribable spectacle balancing on the border of death and beauty. The best visual confirmation of this is a delightful paintings of the Polish artist Mariusz Kozik. Words of famous Italian futurist Francesco Marinetti describe these artworks the best way: “War is beautiful because it enriches a flowering meadow with the fiery orchids of machine guns. War is beautiful because it combines the gunfire, the cannonades, the ceasefire, the scents, and the stench of putrefaction into a symphony. War is beautiful because it creates new architecture, like that of the big tanks, the geometrical formation flights, the smoke spirals from burning villages… Poets and artists of Futurism… remember these principles of an aesthetics of war so that your struggle for a new literature and a new graphic art may be illumined by them.”
