10.203 is a team of street artists and an artist-run space, located at the former factory venue in Saint Petersburg.

10.203 team is represented by 6 artists: Dusto, Ivan Ilinskii, Maxim Ima, Sergei Krasavin, Turben and Xeato. For each of them the artistic formation began in the mid-2000s on the streets of Saint Petersburg. Starting with the then popular tagging and bombing on trains and railroad fences, each has developed unique vision and style, now expressed in both easel painting, installations, street art and their curatorial projects. An association of like-minded independent artists declares its main purpose as support of the local street art community and promotion the Saint Petersburg street scene in the world.

Ivan Ilinskii
The works of Ivan Ilinskii (b. 1993, Rybinsk) are distinguished by their multi-layered and heterogeneous textures. He experiments with different techniques and materials, and one of his favorite tools is a drill, which Ivan has been actively using since 2018.

There are two recognizable images in Ilinskii’s street work: a black silhouette of a man representing the artist's alter ego, and a cross consisting of the initial letters of his initials (Ivan Ilinskii). In the street, Ilinskii always paints in black; there is his rebellious streak and a sense of isolation from society. A black silhouette is also often found in Ivan's canvases, which refers the viewer to his street works. This figure symbolizes a «closed character» (as, for example, in computer games) and alludes to the endless search for one's own identity.

The author is a part of the St. Petersburg creative community 10.203: a group of like-minded urban contemporary artists who organize exhibitions and projects in their gallery/studio and at other venues. 10.203 also includes Maxim Ima, Turben, Xeato, Dusto, and Sergey Krasavin.
