"I lost one of my best friends earlier this year. His name was Artem Voevodin. It’s hard to describe him except to say Artem was an enigma to most. Few people were not envious of his way of life. He hopped trains across the country numerous times, built sculptures for festivals, painted graffiti, loved life and made friends every second of the way. People gravitated towards his energy and charisma, resulting in a truly amazing network of friends around the country. How could you not be envious of someone so loved and so free?"
