Moscow-based Uno Moralez creates mysteriously creepy bitmap narrative works that spin tales of sex, magic, dark humor, and other-worldly creatures. At times the perspective recalls early 90’s computer video games (not this one specifically, but that just needs to be seen), and at others, the thrill of horror manga. Something fantastic is added by the crunch and texture of the bitmap effect, and his use of highly dramatic scenes cause him to stand apart from much of the pixel art the internet has to offer, which tends to play up the flatness of its screen origins. Don’t miss his loops over at his site, and you can get physical with his comic in Chameleon 2.
Moscow based artist Daria Marchik enjoys exploring eccentric non-comformity through her work. She dabbles in many fields, which includes art directing, photography, performance, etc. I love her simple, yet powerfully striking costumes that are so full of humor.
Eibatova Karina a.k.a Ei Ka is an illustrator based in Moscow, Russia. I love her creative typography and her illustration skills. She also does photography! The well trained lines and subtle color is what makes me fall in love with her work.
This guy’s sweatshirt says it all. The dark, capacious surroundings try to steal the show but his face has such a “just you try” intensity that, despite his size, you know he could for sure kill you with his bare hands. See, Moscow based artist, Olya Ivanova, knows that good portraiture should give the viewer an understanding of what it feels like to be the subject of the image. And it feels pretty serious.
