Dazed ran a great feature on Julian Klincewicz’s work this week after a recent book the artist published revealed a rare insight into the world of Gosha Rubchinskiy’s Russian skate crew. That amongst other things. The images are as abstract as you’d expect; a heady mishmash of teenage happenings that offer an insight into the wonderfully cryptic roots of the acclaimed streetwear designer.
Shedding some light on the current state of the Russian skate scene, Klincewicz told Dazed…
“…there really is a good mood and atmosphere around skating in Russia, compared to San Diego or LA … It feels really honest – at least with all the people I was skating with, like Tolya Titaev. The same way it does when you first start skating and it’s all you want to do.”
Klincewicz is a busy bee, just head over to his Tumblr + Instagram to learn more; there’s shed loads of photography (obvz), art installations, clothing designs, videos, runways, behind-the-scenes, zines, books, visual diaries, you name it, he’s on it.
