"From myself"

2019, chipboard, enamel100 x 120 cm

Hamlet's street art is distinguished by a graphic manner of execution and the presence of characteristic author's texts. In 2013, together with Zhanna Kadyrova and Mykola Rydny, he represented Ukraine at the 53rd Venice Biennale. Hamlet Zinkovsky presented two projects: "Alone with himself" (consists of many drawings made with a ballpoint pen and reveals the theme of a person's relationship with himself) and "The Book of People" (an installation of hundreds of portraits made in matchboxes).
