Russian Artist Transforms Old, Shabby Walls Into Mesmerizing Art Objects

Sofia Maksimova, a Russian artist from Irkutsk, certainly has a very special source of artistic inspiration and tons of imagination: she amuses herself by transforming badly plastered walls into small pieces of art, posting “before” and “after” pics of transformed plastered walls (with drawings inspired by their beguiling kinks and contours).

As a child, the artist liked to see images in the contours of walls, ceilings and building facades. She imagined mythological giants, creatures and entire story plots woven into the surface.

Pillows With A Cleverly Hidden Message For Uninvited Guests

These are the Pearl Reveal Cushions designed and sold by Pardeep S. She came up with the idea after a neighbor kept stopping by uninvited and overstaying her welcome, which was zero seconds to begin with.

Each pillow is covered in sequins that, when oriented in one direction, appear gold, but when they’re brushed in the opposite direction reveal a hidden message.

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.

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.
