Saint Petersburg-based artist Vadim Solovyov exquisitely populates streets and urban spaces of Russian cities with giant animals through his amazing surreal photo compositions.
Giant animals (are) only one of the features of this world. Their origin, the history of the world itself can be found in fragments from the texts under the posts. Many posts exist in the context of actual events in my city and country. Through my work, I often convey in a veiled (and sometimes weird) way important for me issues or problems of society (attitude to animals, politics, social flaws). But this, of course, does not exclude the fact that some works are an ironic “visual game” without additional deep meanings.Vadim Solovyov
