Graffiti artist. Moscow, Russia
In his creative process, Zmogk explores the world around him and analyzes his experiences, the impact of emotions he felt at different times. The artist’s pieces reflect the search for a balance between the intuitive, subconscious, radically free initial stage of working on a canvas and the clear, orderly, and rational stage of bringing it to completion. By combining these seemingly opposing approaches, Zmogk creates geometric compositions, which at first glance look chaotic, built with color and lines referring to cubism, expressionism, and fauvism. These compositions are narrative experiments with frequent incorporations of recognizable images: faces, landscapes, etc., through which the author tries to transmit his positive energy.
