“V stole” is a space for unreleased creations. The project allows viewers and readers to touch the living, raw art, while an Artist who is afraid to show his works has a chance to find his audience to develop together. Writing “for the desk” appeared during the censorship movement in Russia. Writers could not publish their works because of the political prohibitions. The works remained unpublished and were kept in the desk. The project name is written in Russian, because this way it saves all the historical meanings, shows the depth of the Russian culture. One of the main goals of the project is to preserve the purity and the style of the Creator, to provide them with an opportunity to gain recognition even after death.
The series of posters are dedicated to everything that takes place “V stole”. The posters show a close connection between fears and peoples’ creativity.[M3] The graphic style is based on a large number of rectangles. They illustrate uncertainty, anxiety thus conveying the feelings of the Author. Negative feelings override common sense, distancing us from the essence. Random, animate shape are created. The first series tries to convey anxiety and worries through the font style and the effect of thought layering. These are visually shown in the chosen types: the handwriting and the modular font.
The next series shows the embodiment of a creative soul of a person. Bright, vivid flowers come out from the dark. They are still insecure and expressive, but they are eager to be embodied. Plasticine conveys the lightness of the soul and the heaviness of the Author’s decision. We always start somewhere, so the third series illustrates the creative path. Fuzzy, uncertain shapes little by little form numbers, showing the progressive development of the Author’s work. The black and white color palette and strict fine typography resemble the pages of a book. The first posters are black, and the last ones are white, what shows the growth and the internal change. Negative feelings do not always interfere with our creativity, but on the contrary, can be used to create something beautiful and completely new. The fourth series shows that art can also be born out from fears and worries just as flowers blossom from a person. Collage technique separates black and white photos and colorful feelings. This is also shown in the contrast of shapes and colours. The great people also had their fears of showing their work. The fifth series will tell you about authors and their fears to prove that it is completely normal to be afraid of something. The photos show the fear of the Сreator, while the viewer sees the union of fears and creativity.
The final series will reveal the Creator’s desk to us. The viewer literally looks inside and, among other things, sees the hidden art using the X-ray. For completeness, we create a cross-type font: a combination of thick and confident Didona with thin, vulnerable Bebas Neue. Also, the project contains the showreel with animated posters and other important details.
