This is memorial piece of three brave men Alexei Ananenko, Valeri Bezpalov and Boris Baranov. All three of them dove into Chernobyl's radioactive waters in 1986 to
prevent the 4th reactor from blowing up which would have killed millions of
lives and made Europe uninhabitable by radiation. They prevented that from happening, very sad to say they died from radiation sickness. I never heard
of these precious souls until recently and felt spiritually compelled to do a
painting of all 3 of them. Everyone should know who these 3 selfless great
men were. Unfortunately I could not locate a photo of Boris Baranov the
man in the middle but I wanted to include him regardless.
Here is the blog where I found out about them.
