A new layer "Conscience" by Moscow artist Julia Vanifateva appeared on the WALL. Her works are built on the opposition of an uncompromising and unvarnished street culture - the gloss culture, with its gloss, well-being and fanatical cult of plastic beauty. Harsh statements and emotionally expressive characters come into confrontation with a pink color, which we are accustomed to be considered naive, girlish and sentimental.
Yulia Vanifatieva chose the words of the classic of the silver age, Alexander Blok as an epigraph and the starting point of her work: “The human conscience encourages a person to look for the best and helps him sometimes to give up the old, cozy, sweet, but dying and decaying - in favor of the new, at first uncomfortable and unfriendly, but promising a new life.”
