vania 292x400 The Sacred and The ProfaneDelicate, sexy, raunchy, pure, dark, modern, classic, evil and kind. As I go through the portfolio of the once child prodigy from Russia Vania Zouravliov many words come to mind to describe each illustration, but no matter how many different possibilities I might encounter there is one word that applies to all of them: breathtaking.

10256 1 585x322 The Miniature World of Nikolai Aldunin

To say Nikolai Aldunin is a master of miniatures, would be an understatement. His work leaves me speechless and that is why I decided to share it with you. Master Microminiature Aldunin Nikolai was born September 1, 1956 in the village of South Lamovatka Voroshilovgradskoy area. From his childhood he fell in love with metallurgy. Growing up he dived deeper and deeper into metal and it’s [ Continue Reading ]

surealism paintings by vladimir kush 5 600x442 542x400 A Metaphorical Voyage

When I was looking at my leads this morning I choose to write about Vladimir Kush, because I like his name. It’s a great name, especially Kush. I was as happy as a banana swinging in a hammock of it’s own skin while repeating it over and over again this morning: Kush. Say it, it’s fun and like any word that you repeat over and over again it starts to sound like something out of this world, which is apropos when you consider what kind of artist Vladimir Kush is: a surrealist or better yet, a metaphorical realist, a monicker that he prefers.

Her painterly digital art mixes Heavy Metal-style fantasy with more girl-friendly anime elements, resulting in work that’s as mysterious as it is engaging. [ Continue Reading ]

moma 09 312x400 There arent six sides to Cubism

I think we, of the internet generation, forget the artists that made art what it is today.

For example, I was utterly surprised that no blogger on has written about Picasso, who has to be one of the most well-known artists of all time.

Although this post is not about Picasso (don’t worry, there will be one!), it is still surprising that this fairly reknowned artist was nowhere to be found on our site either. [ Continue Reading ]

v13 18943275 585x382 Victory Day Revisited

May 9, 2009 has marked the 64th anniversary of the end of World War II. It is not surprising that this day is a huge holiday to our fellow Russians comrades ( me being one of them ), considering they have lost twenty seven million lives in the war alone. To memo-rate these veterans, dead or alive, an annual military parade is usually in service. The parade is always interpreted by the West as an intimidation tactic, this is true to a certain degree, but there is so much more to it that every one always fails to see. [ Continue Reading ]
