Based in Russia and often-altering existing structures into faces, Nomerz bring a wide range of expression to the street. We approve of giving inanimate public structures a personality. Watch the video after the jump...

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.

Access is a powerful tool, and these photos by Lana Sator inside a Russian rocket plant is an eerie, beautiful series. From what we gather in our research, she snuck into the rocket factory to snap these photos, which makes this even better in our book.

What we know is that husband-wife photography duo, Sonia and Mark Whitesnow, are based in Kirov, Russia. We know they create conceptual series using a very clean backdrop and mostly female models. And this image in particular was a striking stop-you-in-your-tracks moment this morning.

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.

Philippe Constantinesco's 'Russian' illustration is a perfect example of realistic minimalism.

This Ukrainian duo has been devoting quality time and effort into each large-scale wall they have painted over the summer. This newest mural in Kosice, Slovakia exemplifies their attention to detail and is among one of our favorites yet.
