What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal: what is lovable in man is that he is an over-going and a down-going.     Nietzsche

These pencil portraits were made by the artist Lena Hades five days after the murder of Boris Nemtsov - in despair after the slaying...
This is the first step of the big art marathon across Russia and abroad, it started the 3 March 2015. Recently you can see here other Nemtsov portraits made by other artists and non-artists too. The goal of the art marathon is to keep the memory of Boris Nemtsov, man and politician with a big heart, intelligence and honesty. 
 
The art marathon will be continued from the 3 March till the day when the real hit sponsor will be arrested

... " Boris Nemtsov was also one of the organizers of an “anti-crisis” protest march, planned for March 1, demanding fair elections and “the immediate end to the war and any aggressive actions toward Ukraine.” After Nemtsov’s murder, the demonstration was hastily reformatted into a memorial procession attended by tens of thousands of people"

This is an artwork dedicated to the war, it was made in 2010. The word МИР means "peace". And this PEACE  was made of bullets... Boris Nemtsov had been speaking out many times against the war in Ukraine. He was brave and fearless. The art marathon in memory of Boris Nemtsov must go on...

"...He managed to stay in politics despite state propaganda labelling him a “foreign agent” and “fifth column”. But fighting Mr Nemtsov after his death may prove even harder than it was during his life. Groomed to be Russia’s liberal president by Boris Yeltsin, the charismatic, honest Mr Nemtsov could turn into a symbol of Russia’s unfulfilled promise. The display of Russia’s national flag next to his name should be particularly troubling for the Kremlin"      The Economist about Boris Nemtsov
