Russian New Year images from Andrew and Vicka Gabriht
Could Andrew Gabriht have imagined that one day he would return to Russia from America? And for the love to Russian handicrafts? First, he and his wife moved to the U.S. in the late 1980s, where they set up a studio. Meanwhile, they brought their designs for the production to Russia. Noteworthy, the idea of combining different styles became fundamental for the artists. In particular, Andrew and Vic created art objects, filled with the Russian spirit, but containing the Western motifs. As a result, today we see a varied collection of toys, which combines folklore and religious themes of the various nations. Also, they harmoniously intertwine several types of traditional painting and folk crafts. In particular, Khokhloma, Gorodetsky painting on wood, Palekh icon painting and Fedoskino miniature painting.
However, most of the collection consists of images of Christmas: Santa Claus, snowmen and fairy tales, breathable Russian traditions.
