Ukrainian artist Alexey Kondakov’s Instagram account @alksko shows what life in 2020 Kyiv would look like if Renaissance gods and goddesses, angels, and muses lived in it.
Using his own pics of Kyiv as backgrounds, the artist calls his works “surrealist documentary photography”, and says they represent his observations of people and places he encounters on a day-to-day basis. “One of my favourite things is gazing at a person on the street, transport, and any other public places,” he told The Calvert Journal.
Kondakov started making collages for fun five years ago, while working as a designer and art director. Since his works went viral in 2015, art has become his full-time occupation.
