It is important not only to transfer the knowledge that was formulated before, changing the form a little, but also to think about what will happen to calligraphy in the future. The artist travels a lot around the world.
Studying how cultures intersect with each other. Ancient civilizations, modern design and futuristic graphic solutions are such a mix of thoughts, emotions and knowledge that turn into new forms.

Philosophy
Many people perceive artists as artisans, and come to them to realize their idea with someone else’s hands. I believe that an artist should be approached as a person with his own philosophy and reveal the idea together — only then there is a contribution to culture
The clients I find interesting to work with are from the world of haute couture and brands with a long history

First fame
In 2008, Arseniy took the pseudonym "Pokras Lampas". The first word comes from the slang of street artists and means the process of "going to draw something". The second is the funniest rhyme he could come up with
Arch in Yekaterinburg on Tolmacheva street, 12
The first officially recognized art object of Pokras. Once it was a dark alley, which the locals used as a public toilet. But thanks to the Stenograffiti festival and the efforts of Pokras, now this address is a must-have on all excursions to the modern sights of the capital of the Urals.
Painting factory "Red October" in Saint Petersburg
In 2015, he entered the Guinness Book of Records by painting the roof of the Krasny Oktyabr factory in gothic font. In length, this work is comparable to the height of a 22-storey building, its area is 1625 square meters. meters. Paint spent two days and over 700 liters of paint on it.
Painting of the Palace of Italian Civilization in Rome
The same year Pokras painted the largest roof in Rome. Calligraphy on an area of ​​1250 sq. meters became a project for F is For Fendi, an online platform that supports the style and creativity of millennials
Start of cooperation with opera gallary
The cooperation began at the end of 2015, when the Opera gallery in Dubai came to Pokras and asked me to send me the catalog of my first solo exhibition in Seoul, which had opened shortly before.
Mural "D ¥ AL I Z M" on the wall of the WYNWOOD design hotel in St. Petersburg
Beginning of August 2018. The work is devoted to the duality of perception of contemporary art and is a manifesto. Its text is written in two languages, helping the viewer to explore both the differences between alphabets and cultural references in letterforms, and integrating them in the context of future calligraphy.
Now there is no criticism in a constructive way. People who criticize should remember not to destroy what others have built. We need to create some kind of competitive idea and introduce alternatives into our creative environment. Criticism of an artist is stupid, because art — is how we see the world and express it. And ihow can we judge a person because he sees the world in this way? Creativity needs to be supported and, if at some point it seems to you that it is not interesting, you can always pass by and find someone who is interesting to you.
Keep your eyes and Heart open. Life is one big live performance. Performance of our works. Performance of our discoveries. Performance of our words.
