Rudra’s artwork is based on the plight of animals as a result of human actions. The subject of his artwork “Blinded?” is the sandy mole-rat (Spalax arenarius): a rodent unique to the Ukraine which faces the threat of habitat destruction. Rudra explained he is asking the viewer “who really is blind?”
