Woodcum

Another good deal of bitter irony this time comes from the apocalyptic collages and illustrations by Philipp Igumnov, — aka Woodcum, or “Would Come” — a bizarre artist from Moscow, Russia. The vintage tone is quite comfortable but you don’t have to stop and think too much about the context… Because here no one is safe.

Hunting for images over the internet, Philipp pieces them together to form a vision of the future in retro: a comfortable 50s image on death scenarios, with the result of something surreally gloomy and unavoidable — except escape towards space or the clouds. Aside from his fascination with old postcards and science fiction, Philipp’s art is influenced by music: in his blog, his artworks are accompanied by music, from quiet piano solos to spacey and atmospheric tunes that match perfectly with each image.
