Escif's book, which he crowdfunded earlier this year, has just landed on my doorstep and it's an absolute beauty. Loads of drawings, source material, background information and walls both big and small; there's also a nice little poster. The book is available to buy from his website for those who missed out on the crowdfunding:
Escif currently has an exhibition on at the PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art in Russia entitled 'Greetings From Molotov'. There are some photos up on his website and, although I've posted a few below, there's a bunch more here.
And also, I thought it was worth sharing this .gif which he's posted that references the ongoing refugee crisis:
I really like Escif but sometimes I don't understand the choice for his editions.
Feel the same. I appreciate his creativity, but would I really put an apple with a gun collection on my walls? Unless it goes with a theme (ironic fruit?) it's a pass for me. It's fun to look at, but not something i'm eager to own.
You are right, his murals are strange nowadays as well. At least I don't understand them. But I think this print is a funny one which makes you think. Fruit with guns? What or who does the apple want to shoot and why? I might be totally wrong with my interpretation, but I see it like nature needs to heavily defend itsself against humans before it's too late.
