Artist Spotlight: Yury Laptev
Reflection and imagination collected from a mosaic of memories and thoughts on paper by pencil and watercolor (-:
This is the description artist/illustrator Yury Laptev provides for his series Graphic Reflections, and there’s no other apt description than this. Laptev’s imagination is limitless, and his dream-like paintings show a world where everyone’s minds are unrestrained by the rigidness of society. Nothing is ordinary in Laptev’s world–fish fly, doors open to portals into other worlds, and the trains are slow not due to incompetence from the transportation bureau but because the trains are controlled by slugs, naturally. You can see more of Laptev’s work on his Behance account. His series The Martian Chronicles is also another of our favorites.
