Style wars

«Style wars» series was launched in 2014. Stepan Krasnov conceived to combine quote of Roy Lichtenstein and classic graffiti. Therefore, quotes the famous pop art artist were on the street, faced with traditional graffiti “style war” and went back to the machine-genre, enriched with the street context and the special energy. Canvases were made in Moscow and in the art residence in Marrakech.
Interestingly, in his canvases the artist uses the Cyrillic alphabet, which is still not so common in the graffiti environment. Despite the obvious national characteristics of Russian street art, only a relatively small number of artists working with the Cyrillic alphabet. Even fewer were in the early 2000s, because, seeing the current trends of American and European magazines and films about street art, artists including copying and Latin fonts.
The works in this series were shown at group exhibitions in Marrakesh, Paris and Barcelona. Almost all currently held in private collections.
