Alex Partola. WALL ELEMENTS 2

Wall Elements 2 is the first large-scale research of the Russian graffiti and street art scene from Kaliningrad to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, a bold attempt to bring together the works of most notable street artists, completely unlike each other, drawing both illegally as well as in legal places, to capture their approaches and methods.

Only the local artists with a true street background take part in the project: 70 individuals and teams total coming from 17 cities. The author of the project considers as his task to show a wide cross-section of the Russian street art scene. Some of the participants already had successful collaborations with galleries and museums. Here are emerging artists and well-known names, authors of the largest murals in the world, participants of international street art biennales, major festivals and exhibitions. Even when they gain the commercial success, they do not abandon the street, shaping the visual culture of the city with their works.

The designers of the album Wall Elements 2 are Alex Partola and Nikita K. Scriabin, co-founder of the publishing house "Os", a well-known Moscow artist. The album is based on the material captured by Alex Partola in the course of his annual photographic research and consists of 2 volumes: the documentation of the creation of the works of artists, the texts and creative manifestos of the artists contains the first volume of the almanac, the second volume contains only of photographs on which work is fixed on the street.
