Forget Everything You Thought You Knew About ‘Russian’ Dolls

Want to have one of these fancy-dressed beauties in your collection? Get in line! Even Jean Paul Gaultier has two. These hyperrealistic dolls are not your typical girl toy or matryoshka. About 40 cm tall, they’re made of polyurethane resin, plastic or porcelain, and they have correct anatomic proportions and are dressed in haute couture.

Born in the city of Perm and now living in St. Petersburg, twin sisters Ekaterina and Elena Popovy have been making dolls since 2004. Their early works had faces of popular idols of that time: Die Antwoord, Marilyn Manson, Dita von Teese, Madonna, John Galliano and others.

Each of the sisters’ collections reflects a different style and ethnic flavor. “Our main inspiration is nature because it’s an unsurpassed designer,” they said.

Slightly NSFW.

You Won’t Believe The Mindblowing Metal Sculptures Created By The ‘Weld Queen’ Of Russia

Alexandra Ivleva, a Russian welder and metal designer, tears down gender stereotypes when she turns on her soldering iron and welding mask.

With a wardrobe of special dresses for welding, Alexandra doesn’t sacrifice her femininity: for example, combining traditional Russian dress with a welding mask in kokoshnik-style; as well as a night dress and an angel suit – all made of non-metallic material, of course. The 32-year-old woman has already been successfully working at this traditional masculine craft for several years.

Alexandra’s mind has been working overtime to generate new ideas for sculptures and other projects. She particularly enjoys creating rocking chairs of various shapes, calling them interactive sculptures. Her works are less likely to be seen in exhibition halls, and most likely found in parks, where they are used as benches, swings, and etc.

Rude Message To Donald Trump Appears As A Crop Circle On Stoke Mandeville Farm

The message has rather a naughty word in Russian (F**K), followed by Trump. Speaking to the farm owner, the crop circle has been manufactured as part of an art installation. It appears on the flight path that Donald Trump will take from London to Chequers.

The owner of Moat Farm in Stoke Mandeville said: “I was approached by an artist, who wished to remain anonymous to use one of my crop fields. They were specifically looking for one in the flight path that Donald Trump will take when he comes to the UK this week. There was a financial transaction, I won’t say how much but it was renumeration for the damaged crops, which won’t be salvagable.”

Trump will be able to see it from the left window of his helicopter on the way to Chequers.

Artist Julie Gonce Creates Stunning Organic Glass Sculptures

French artist Julie Gonce combines natural elements with sculpted glass forms to create unique pieces.

Gonce was raised around artists who ignited her creativity and influenced her to create unique work.

“I grew up surrounded by artisans and artists, and I quickly discovered that I wanted a hands-on profession,” Gonce tells Colossal. “I chose glass by chance, but when I did a glassblowing training course I was immediately drawn to it.”
