Faces and Laces, 12 posters
On May 21-22 a street culture show called Faces and Laces was held in Moscow for the fourth year in a row. Especially for this event I made 12 new illustrations which were exhibited on my personal wall. You can view the pictures of my wall with all 12 posters after the jump.
AnyForty Versus Exhibition
Alan Warlde of AnyForty UK invited me to take part in the upcoming group show at Start the Bus Bristol art gallery. Al asked a bunch of designers and illustrators, who has already worked with him, to create an A3 poster for the show. After the 12 posters I made during the last month for the Faces and Laces show (which will be held in Moscow on 21-22 May) this seems to be a pretty relaxing thing to do. So I’m going to chill and enjoy creating this illustration.
The show at Start the Bus art gallery will last three days from June 11 till June 13. If you happen to be in Bristol in June, please drop by! I’ll post some pictures from the show after it’s over. Stay tuned!
New Works Uploaded
At the beginning of the year guys from the Spanish Belio Magazine offered me to publish a book of my works. They scheduled the release for autumn 2010. It seemed to be such an exciting project, but a few days ago they told me that, unfortunately, due to financial problems they won't able to print the book. So I decided to upload my recent works, which were reserved for the book, onto my Portfolio.
Print Magazine #2, Vol. 64
My profile has been published in Print Magazine #2, Vol. 64; I was chosen along with other 19 young artists to be featured in their special annual New Visual Artists issue. My friend from New York has sent me over some photos of the mag, as well as some pics of my illustration which was displayed at Phaidon Store in NYC. Thanks to Mitya Pankov for the photos! You can check them out after the jump.
Faces and Laces 2010, Sneak peek
Faces and Laces, an interactive show dedicated to street culture, will be held in Moscow for the fourth time this year. It will take place at the end of May at an amazing venue in the very heart of the city, right next to the Red Square. Besides the streetwear consumer section, there will be a huge exhibition space where the works of both Russian and foreign artists will be showcased. This year's line-up looks pretty impressive and includes Viagrafik, Usugrow, Sat One, Stak, Zbiok, Mike Keshnar, and Samuel François.
I’m making a series of posters especially for the show, and I’ve participated in some exciting collaborations which will be displayed there as well. I’ll upload all my new works into my Portfolio after the show. If you happen to be in Moscow at the end of May, you are welcome to come around! Meanwhile, you can get a glimpse of the venue after the click.
Web Publications
After the launch of my new website a few blogs supported me and made posts about my work. I would like to thank Form Fifty Five, Graff Art, Design Collector, Netdiver, Montana Cans, Grain edit, Pain tranche and Velvet Liga. Keep an eye on them! Check out some screenshots after the jump.
New Site Launch
Today I proudly present the new version of the Sicksystems site. Since summer 2009 the Sicksystems has been my personal project, and on this site you can check out my recent works (in the portfolio section), as well as some old stuff (in the archive section); both sections together illustrate the development of my style really well. I've gathered the total of 125 projects made from 2003 to 2009 on this site. I will upload the most recent works, made in late 2009 - early 2010, a little bit later, because all of them have been reserved for different publications. You can read about some useful features and updates after the jump.
CODE RED graffiti magazine turns five years this year, and we are celebrating it with the release of our 6th issue. Working as the Editor in Chief, collecting materials, taking interviews, making layout all by myself has been a pretty tough job, but I'm really happy with the result! I'd like to congratulate and thank all our team for their hard work and all our readers for their support. Check out some spreads from the new issue after the jump.
