I posted about this Russian artist about 18 months ago, when reaching the sites carrying his etchings, drawings, paintings and ex libris prints was a very time consuming process. But Sergey wrote to advise that he has a new slick site with high resolution images available. I love the retro fantasy folk whimsy.

Yes, those are very fine!

So glad you featured him again -- I wasn't quite captivated the first time, but now I am hooked! Thanks!

What wonderful images you have here! I have never visited your blog before, but I will certainly do so in the future! Just my wierd take on the visual, but the bear being slayed below, at first I identified as a cat getting accupuncture ;O)

goodness me- these fantastic images are like a magical deja vu with ones childhood

Elatia Harris said...

I see an influence of Maurice Sendak in this wonderful stuff -- anybody agree?

DinoThesaurus-Rex said...

I'm speechless. Es un trabajo maravilloso, realmente fuera de este mundo, grandisimo hallazgo

Reese Zollinger said...

Nice post again. I've never seen these images before, nor heard of their author. It truly amazes me that work like this can exist underneath the shadows of pop culture, when they are so pressing and present (and I would add, wholly post-pop).

Thanks again, BibliOdyssey.

Thanks for posting these. (I particularly liked the Moon).

Amazing stuff, as usual. Love the giant grasshopper.

Paul said...

Reminds me strongly the Codex Seraphinianus, by italian artist Luigi Serafini. Have you ever posted anything about him ?

hugo der knabe said...

marvelous art very meticulouslly made working,there is a similar artist from bratislava,peter klucik,visit him.

peacay said...

Paul, I've posted a couple of images from Codex Seraphinianus but I note that the whole book was put on flickr recently. It's a delicate copyright matter however.

Thanks Hugo. Monsterbrains did a post on Kluick last year. All the images online are not very big unfortunately.

Marco Siegel-Acevedo said...

These are wonderful. The surreal whimsy reminds me of the work of Peter Sis.

Artifact Puzzles sells some of Tyukanov's paintings as puzzles.
