Moscow-based illustrator Katya Dorokhina is turning heads in the arts world with her unique aesthetic that combines nighttime palettes and neon colors. Her main interest lies in making comics and zines, animated illustration and working with 3D objects. Katya sketches compositions before digitally editing them with Photoshop allowing her to play and experiment with texture, light and color.
Dimitri Drjuchin is an artist/musician who was born in Moscow, but grew up making images and sounds in New York City. Wielding the culmination of human potential wrought from the depths of the bicameral mind, Drjuchin’s art is a hyperdimensional machine that invokes creatures who come bounding forward with affection and recklessness.
These are not the Icons of the Byzantine Church—they are the new Incarnated Symbols of the Multiverse. Drjuchin allows us a glimpse into a fractulated moment of cultural hypnagogic modality and an opportunity to alter our perspectives of reality.
The small Russian village of Nikola-Lenivets, about 120 miles southwest of Moscow, is home to the annual Archstoyanie Land Art Festival, bringing thousands of people every year to admire land art, sculptures and architecture. The event brings in respected artists from all over the world, this past year representing France, Germany and Japan, among others, to construct temporary and long-standing installations in ‘Nikola Lenivets Park‘.
The first festival was hosted in 2006, lead by Nikolay Polissky, who inspired Archstoyanie Land Art Festival when he moved to Nikola-Lenivets to escape the chaos of city life and began to create large-scale installations, constructed by surrounding materials, such as branches, hay and snow. The festival continues to grow, attracting more architecture and art enthusiasts every year.
