Russian illustrator Evgeny Parfenov is turning out some excellent, colorful and classic portraits for publications like Newsweek, Rolling Stone and Interview. His work is a lot of fun and is just the right mix of pop and art to lend itself towards a broad appeal which is no doubt why he is attracting the publications he’s illustrating for.
ussian graphic designer Artëm Gridin has portfolio of work that is raw, classic and contemporary all in equal measure. It’s a bit of a throwback but in all the right ways as the end result is timeless graphic design.
Moscow-based artist Aske who calls himself Sicksystems recently decided to take his geometric, retro-sci-fi-twinged illustration style into the 3rd dimension for the Faces & Laces exhibit by building imagery out of cut pieces of wood that he then painted. The end result shares a surprisingly tight link with his traditional flat style.
Russian illustrator collage artist Masha Rumyantseva has an interesting perspective primarily fueled by a bygone slightly naive era that seems slightly sad when put into the modern cynical techno-industrial societal complex.
‘Take Care’ is the typographical and experimental illustration work of a Moscow based designer. There is some fun stuff happening in his Flickr pages including a lot of interesting experimental typography that is well worth checking out.
Russian broadcast and motion graphics designer Andrey Nepomnyaschev has recently relaunched his site and updated with new and slick project work.
Russian illustrator Eika Dopludo has been busy since I last posted her work and has updated with some new and even trippier examples of hand drawn lettering. It’s psychedelic type as image and it’s a lot of fun to look at.
SBSS which I think sometimes stands for ‘Space Based Space Surveillance’ is also the name of Russian graphic designer and illustrator Sergey Sbss. He takes a ‘geometric-pop’ approach to his work that results in some eye candy colorways.
Since I first wrote about Moscow native artist Ted Vasin last summer, he has since updated with a new site and some new work for 2009. His style continues to amaze with the strange weaving of the real and the surreal.
Russian artist and illustrator Eika Dopludo has some nice pencil work in her Behance-folio but the standout is definitely this hand drawn alphabet. Each letterform is it’s own work of art and you can see all of them one-by-one here.
Moscow-based graphic and motion designer Serge Zavyalov has a lot of work on his website executed in various styles. His imagery often harbors the ready-to-burst kinetic energy that helps it translate directly into motion.
There is some stunning examples of imaginative vector illustration in the portfolio of Moscow-based, Zutto.
Russian photographer Varya Vedeneeva, takes some very candid shots primarily of people and manages to capture momentarily something very personal in her subjects.
Ted Vasin paints some highly unusual imagery that I wasn’t entirely sure how to interpret. Although I like all of it very much. Beautiful use of color.
