Anatoly Fomenko, a Soviet and Russian mathematician born in 1945, feels the need for expressing abstract mathematical concepts through artwork. Since the mid-1970s, Fomenko has created more than 280 graphic works.

Russian designer Nikita Kovalev has created something that will make the entry to your home/apartment a more adventurous task: the bang-bang handle, a gun as door handle creation. Perhaps your parents won't like it, but we do.

Rodion Kitaev is an editorial illustrator living and working in Moscow, Russia. We like his style. Illustrations of this sort always seem to grab our attention, so we stopped and took time to appreciate some of Mr. Kitaev's work.
