As we draw closer to the new year we’ve asked a very special guest every day to take a moment to reflect on 2018 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for them. It’s a box of treats to surprise you with every day – and conjure our hopes and wishes for 2019. This is our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and of saying ‘Thank You’ to you for inspiring us throughout the year.
Today’s special guest:
Sabina Chagina, Co-Founder of the Artmossphere Biennale in Moscow, Russia
Dear BSA readers!
Happy New Year!
I want to wish you a pure art in your daily life, because art is actually a very important thing to start with. It’s not a dessert or a hobby.
That is why I chose this photo as one of the recent works by Shepard Fairey, whom I worked with this year during his participation in the 3rd Artmossphere Biennale in Moscow. The work called “Tunnel vision” was inspired by the aesthetics of Russian constructivism and made in his signature OBEY style.
In the center you can see the inscription in cyrillic “Art must be spread everywhere”.
Be happy, be with art.
Artist: Shepard Fairey
Title: “Tunnel Vision”
Date: September 2018
Photographer Vasiliy Kudryavtsev
