painter, concept artist, muralist
Gooze is a muralist, street artist and painter from Krasnodar in the south of Russia. He’s been in the field for more than 15 years and seems to have found the job of his dreams.
From a young age he has been drawing pretty much anything related to concept art and creatures of the unknown. With a strong feeling for fantasy realms and the use of a very rich and saturated colour palette, he creates the most illustrious artworks on any surface in a style that clearly originates from his days in the game industry (to be more specific: a concept and character designer). Other influences come from our great and beautiful world, where certain recognizable elements with hints of reptilian and amphibious animals are being thrown in the mix. Although his work is specific to certain aspects, it is safe to say that he has mastered the profession and can create anything that is desired.
Together with his comrade Bozik he has travelled to many places, always searching for open spaces and walls that are ready to receive a new layer of sprayed goodness. Many festivals have seen his pretty face, but he’s well remembered by his rapid-spray movement. Up until very recently, he has taken his skills to a new level: Super realistic street art in the blink of an eye. We have seen many artists paint with ease, but this is just a pleasure to watch.
As some say: “he is a machine”. but this one runs on vegetables, fruit, nuts and Belgian croissants!
