ivan yazykov

Ivan Yazykov is a graphic artist born in Moscow in 1975 in a family of artists.

In 2000, he graduated from the Faculty of Graphic Design of the Moscow State Pedagogical University and joined the Moscow Art Institute.

Influenced by his favorite discipline "fonts", in 1999 he began to draw the series "Book of Letters", which involves 33 graphic improvisations on the theme of letters of the Russian alphabet. A little later, a series of "Puzzles", "Microdramas" and others are born.

Ivan's graphic works created by rapidograph are carefully crafted compositions, the result of many months, or even years of painstaking and inspired work. The variety of details gives the plots a fantastic effect and creates other worlds saturated with ciphers, details and images that can be very difficult to see without a magnifying glass.
At Cosmoscow 2023, for the first time, a new work by the artist "The Knot Museum", which he has been painting for the last 2 years, will be exhibited.
