Graffiti in Russia
Graffiti in Russia. Somewhere in Russia, people are very creative, trying to decorate dull fences, gray dirty walls, old worn-out buildings and more. The result of their work – bright, unexpected images that attract the attention of passers-by and uplifting and, in general, changing the face of the area to the better. Among street artists appear talented artists, whose names have become known in this kind of creativity. They rightfully occupy a high place in the Olympus of art. I do love Graffiti as a creative form of street art. Street art in our country is increasingly gaining momentum and becoming more popular. It adorns cities, asks questions and gives answers, drawing our attention.
We are accustomed to admire the works of Banksy, Herakut, ROA and other recognized masters of street art known around the world. But about a year ago the Internet community turned to the works of Russian artists, who sometimes do not yield to Western counterparts, but in terms of insights are even closer to us. And such talents in our country, it turns out, are more than enough. Here is the collection of most of the brightest and most talented street artists of Russia.
Paul P183. Glory fell on Paul after his work suddenly spread out on the network, his art was featured in The Guardian, Daily mail and Telegraph. British press immediately called P183 “Russian Banksy”, but the artist is annoyed by this fact, to say the least.
Nikita Nomerz lives in Nizhny Novgorod, but enlivens walls and buildings in different cities of Russia. Media started talking about a young artist, after just two of his work came into the world as the best works in the field of urban art in 2011.
Zuk Club is not an artist, as it is clear from the title, but the whole art group. Almost the only street of the arteries in the country who works with advertising, too, as well as participate in the Biennale, and other events related to contemporary art.
Slava PTRK is from Yekaterinburg. Author of the controversial project “Patriarch piggy bank”, which was destroyed and reappeared several times.
Max 13. “Thirteen” Max lives in Ivanovo. Draws not only on the walls (in the sense of Art street he draws only), but in general. For example, produces T-shirts with graphics. Fractured long faces – in many ways, his Identification feature.
