Russian Rock Art and Graffiti

I’m taking an online class FROM GLYPH TO GRAFFITI, delving into my interest in human marks/writing in the landscape.

This image is by the Russian street artist, Pavel 183, who worked anonymously. The stenciled image might be an example of “going over” or putting up a piece over someone else’s graffiti. But I can’t tell just from looking who did the background.

A prehistoric petroglyph from the Lake Onega area of Russia. I was amazed, acclimatized as I am to bison or humpbacked flute players, to see this image—both naturalistic and mythic.
