16 585x384 The sublime strokes of Magomed Dovjenko

Magomed Dovjenko is looking for representation.  It says so on his site, where one may also find a fair sampling of his gritty, industrial, and marvellously fluid illustrations.  Spanning from graffitied back alleys to branded billboards and outwards into liquid shards and vaporous alchemy, this young Cologne-based artist incorporates diverse urban perspectives with scintillating effect.

While his rapsheet includes big names such as Adidas, Reebok, Ecko, and Johnson & Johnson (of whom I’ve previously made my opinion clear), Dovjenko’s art grounds itself in an authentic expression.  His illustrations facilitate a sort of dialogue between the different momentums swelling and crashing against each other.

Sure, some of them are designed to sell sneakers.  But the subjects’ captivation with and sublimation into their surroundings, like the artist’s painting himself into the mosaic, precludes any corporate affiliation.  More valid than the brands, what Dovjenko is representing here is the very process by which cultures,  rooted in concrete, animate and walk those same back alleys with a vibrant, fluid stride.

    I just found your website on Google and I must say, I’m impressed. I frequent a lot of blogs and yours is by far one of the best I’ve come across. The information you have here is concise and accurate and you have a very good writing style. Perhaps you should consider writing a book?

    Hello. I just wanted to pop in and comment on the design of your blog. Don’t take this the wrong way, but it’s too loud. It’s doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say – which I think is really important.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your thoughts? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But its got no punch, no pop! Maybe if you added a pic or two, a video? You could have such a more powerful blog if you let people SEE what youre talking about instead of just reading it.
