What art?

The pandemic made everything going online even worse, and the art scene suffered particularly badly. Many independent galleries were forced to either go digital or close shop.

The logo combines the Glagolitic (the oldest known Slavic alphabet used in ancient orthodox texts and icons) with a classic modern sans, exploring the inherent tension between the modern and the ancient. The colour palette brings together the rich burgundy of Russian icons (which were traditionally painted on wood) and the energizing fresh crimson, adding up to a real feast for the eyes.
