Stuck in the countryside of a cold Russian wilderness, a symbol of isolated/invisible power and stature, Timofey Radya is the creator of Figure #1: Stability. As Radya notes in his own description of the piece, "After the formation officers may leave the area." From what we gather, and from Radya's video, the piece is a construction of lonely power, a sort of comedic tragedy of how power is constructed when nobody is paying attention. Love the red carpet treatment.

I'll give it to Russian artist and illustrator Sasha Blosyak for producing something I've never seen before. Hyper-color, super saturated aggressive dolphins, lazer-eyed, colossal bunny rabbits, battling it out with super-stretched werewolves... I don't know where the ideas for these drawings come from, maybe it has something to do with Russia, but I like it.
