Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]

One of the best things I read about the status of art in the public space this year was written by Edo Dijksterhuis, covering Taturo Atzu's rooftop intervention on Amsterdam's oldest church: "It becomes like urban furniture, not something people notice. No one seems to care about monuments or how they’re perceived, whether they’re perceived at all. It takes a conscious effort to really see them again."
This really made me think: public art is a huge commitment, but it's true—i... [more]
May’s Met Gala saw many dubious fashion statements but few as controversial as Katy Perry's Moschino dress designed by Jeremy Scott, who wore a matched ensemble. Perry walked the red carpet in an off-the-runway dress from Moschino’s Fall 2015 collection, which incorporates illustrated printed elements that bear a striking similarity to a 2012 mural piece by New York artist, RIME.
The mural, titled Vandal Eyes, was painted legally in Detroit, according to the subsequent lawsuit filed... [more]

Where do we go from here? It is usually the first question pondered and the most difficult to answer. The Sandtown/Winchester communities are still in the process of healing over three months after what the media has named the Baltimore Riots. Both neighborhood residents and Baltimoreans citywide have been attempting to make sen... [more]

Every artist worth their salt has their own distinctive aesthetic, and that proves especially important for graffiti and street art, where artists compete directly in the public space, not only to catch the eye of the passerby but to build an instantly recognizable identity within their community. Graffiti, after all, is all about whose tag is "up" the most in a territory.
Brooklyn-based Maya Hayuk works both in the streets and the studio and her aesthetic is ubiquitous. With its pop ne... [more]
Romantics looking to express their love with a padlock on Les Pont des Arts over the Canal Saint Martin in Paris are in need to find another place to do it: the famed "love locks" bridge was finally deemed a safety hazard, due to the weight of the huge quantity of locks left there by lovers. At the beginning of June local officials put an end to the tradition, removing some 45 metric tonnes of locks off the bridge. But the public reactions surrounding the municipal action have generated a wider c... [more]
The small Dutch city of Utrecht is receiving worldwide attention this weekend as its charming canals and cobbled corridors play host to Le Grand Départ: the launch of the Tour de France, which hits the road on Saturday.
As with any major sporting event, the rights to host Le Grand Départ are as much rights to major commercial and tourism opportunities as they are to the Majesty of Sport. Naturally, Tour merch abounds and nearly every shop in town has a decorated Peugeot racer, sleek... [more]
Gentrification is the big bad wolf in the modern day urban party. Never formally invited, it heard of the gathering by word of mouth and will restlessly attempt to enter even if it has to blow the entire structure down. No one likes it—neither the apologetic gentrifier nor the displaced community who lack enough financial clout or power to resist or keep up with the shift. It barrels forward as if it has no memory of itself, all history lessons completely erased. After it passes, the area h... [more]

Lying somewhere on the spectrum between an amusement park and seaside resort, Coney Island attracts tourists with its boardwalk, rides, and more. But the visiting spectator might not know so much about the residential community of nearly 60,000 people who live within this area.
Hoping to add a cultural currency to the historic tourist spot, this summer Coney Art Walls presents more than 20 temporary walls painted by artists like Miss Van, Lady Pink, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Futura, and artist-in-residence Marie R... [more]
