Essential and fairy, the street art by 0331C is a fascinating way to explore a city with a cold and white light, leading a constant battle against the immorality of bureaucrats and rulers. The battle, which Moscow has been losing for more than 6 years already, blurring its historical appearance.
Dipping into the street game of graffiti and street art, the artist turned to the roots of this game — to the prehistoric methods of drawing. And this helped him to gain an insight into graffiti. Graffiti which were created thousands years ago are extant and full of energy and wisdom of their creators.
“In my opinion, the target of every graffiti artist is to leave his mark on a place. And this ‘barbaric’ desire is essential now days. Otherwise contemporary methods and surfaces used for graffiti prevent the immortalization of the drawings. Graffiti, as well as the whole contemporary life, is very rapid: the drawings fade, they are painted out and buffed, the building ruins are demolished unlike stones and mountains with graffiti which root back to the prehistoric times and extant.
In the context of contemporary world it’s a common knowledge that graffiti is very ephemeral. And this opinion is quite the opposite to what prehistoric graffiti used to be.
Millimetre by millimetre, the desired lines are made and sparks flying upwards awake the prehistoric wishes and desire to curve graffiti. Graffiti is timeless.”
