Daft Cyrill Clunev

Cyrill Clunev is a Russian artist who sees the world through a trapper keeper from 1996. That’s an obscure image, to be sure, but Clunev’s abstract works are reminiscent of the same kind of computer-generated commercial post-post-modernism you want accessorizing your homework as an 11-year-old on the go. Or maybe that was just me. [ Continue Reading ]

There aren’t six sides to Cubism

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 ]

cac8ec0b9b72 kefirux 585x389 Dmitriy Maximov: A Surreal Sunrise

Dmitry Maximov is a Russian-born artist that seems to exist in a world of his own.  His works are at once as human — and humane — as anyone peeking in from the outside and altogether surreal, making up a land that is not so much a caricature of ours, but, perhaps, its shadow, a whisper of a possibility of what we could have been.  And, thankfully, are not.  More humane, perhaps, more painfully lonely, more different from one another in a way, we, who have our race around us, our country, our city, our family, even our culture, should ever fear to be.

50 585x382 Soviet Wold War 2 Pictures in Color

There is something about World War 2 that has always fascinated me. I think it’s the stories, the clothes, the technology, the passion that interests me about this particular war.  Being raised in America I have seen plenty of pictures and movies about the war being fought on the American side and I am glad that there are still movies being produced that tell the story of the brave. But being of Russian descent, World War 2 pictures from the Russian side hold a certain value to me, especially since my grandfather was a soldier in the Soviet army, and was killed in action.

Hermetic art.  A personal transition.  What Russian artist Alex Andreev reflects in his work is an alternate and futuristic universe, one that stems from the sprockets and sheaves of his mind.   And although the scenery he portrays are not rainbows and smiles, it makes one toss the idea around of what this world is like.

1941 1945 282x400 Russian Aeroflot Posters

So I have this weird fascination with old commie stuff… I swear I love capitalism and dream of bathing in money almost as much as I think about sex. So it does not come as a surprise that when I saw these posters I drooled all over my beard and nearly farted. I just love how these posters are drawn and the colors that are being used, they are very rough, simple and a [ Continue Reading ]
