“After School” by Rustam QBic

The Russian artist Rustam Qbic specializes in street art that seem larger than life. His paintings are saturated with lush adventure, colors and defined by a playful sense of the absurd. Emerging in both expected and unexpected places, his paintings adorn not only the walls of dilapidated buildings, but residential blocks.

There is an amazing sense of synthesis between Qbic’s art and its surroundings. His art recalls the various designs of house and home, nature, and man’s role. The juxtaposition of the familiar with the unexpected evokes a magical sense of whimsy.
