INLOCO Gallery
Since 2009, Turben (b. 1990, Kirishi) has been doing graffiti. Even then, in addition to font compositions, he created bright figurative works on the walls. Turben’s recognizable images, such as a charming dog with a round muzzle, the silhouette of a lonely person or a character that seems to have come out of a detective story, can be found both in the artist’s studio works and in city streets. Many of Turben’s works carry serious themes, presented in his special ironic and playful manner, thanks to which the viewer can get closer to the artist’s images and treat the world in an easier and kinder way.

Currently, Turben continues to experiment with different materials and still has the same emotional approach to drawing, noting that all his work depends on the mood at the moment.

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