These were made for the 2015 exhibition "Is it war already?" at the temporary pop-up gallery Untitled in St. James London. When asked about the series, Melle June answered: "I don't understand this question about war. I don't think we have to be scared. Look, Putin isn't scared, he goes to see art, while we make pictures of him. That's what I can appreciate about Putin."
