DARK ELECTRO INDUSTRIAL

2009

Background illustration for Dark Electro Industrial, music analytics website. By this work, I wanted to convey the atmosphere and aesthetics of the music trend, to which the website is dedicated. I tried to imagine how the style of Dark Electro Industrial would look like if it were a living being.

ESCAPE FROM SNOW CAPTIVITY

Cynicism and cruelty can kill any living being, just like winter frost. But if one has not lost the last hope, a miracle can happen, and help will come, letting one run through any snow walls.

2013

She weaves dreams to carry you beyond the worlds’ end. Where one can stay forever.

THE FLIGHT

2010

“The Flight” – illustration for “I Don’t Need Them” by Vladimir Shirogorov. The plot of this novel – telling about the loss of love – inspired me to depict a love drama as a butterfly, bringing the faces of the main characters on its outspread wings. Love is a flight, which sometimes comes to a fall.

RITUAL OF THE MERGING

Achieving personal integrity through merging of one’s Light and Shade.

CATCHERS

2010

Illustration for “Catchers” by Vladimir Shirogorov. A novel about the catchers of human souls and wolves, who become victims themselves.

HYPOCRISY

2011

“Hypocrisy“ - Illustration for “Their Inside“ by Vladimir Shirogorov. The book deals with the hypocrisy of the world of politics, so I tried to convey this theme by this metaphor.

Images:

VENENATION

2011

“Venenation” – illustration for “The Last Kingdom“, a trilogy by Vladimir Shirogorov. The idea of being poisoned by power penetrates all the parts of this trilogy, so I decided to depict is as a venomous flow-serpent that is trying to catch the characters being at their time a part of them.

Images:

THE BLUEBIRD

2013

To grasp one’s luck, one is to escape from the cage of fears and doubts.

Images:

GENESIS

“Genesis“ - illustration for “Rogov“, a story by Vladimir Shirogorov. Here I showed the process of creation of a new civilization, anthropogenic and biologic simultaneously.

Images:

METAMORPHOSIS

2009

“Metamorphosis” – illustration for “Somebody Nobody”. It’s a symbol of the unity of opposites, a subtle line between the beautiful and the ugly, a girl as a flower, yet a flower carnivorous and dangerous.

Images:

RAPTURE

2004

“Rapture” – illustration based on Andersen’s “Snow Queen”. It was interesting for me to use modern visual language to illustrate a classic story by Andersen, to make a sort of remix. The work itself however was created with traditional materials, being a lacquer painting.

Images:

THE NEW PROGRAMME

2003

“The New Programme” painting. The subject was inspired by my dreams.

PALEONTOLOGY

2008
