City portrait project

30 sculptures are set to appear in the park, which have been created based on an artist’s sketches of the park’s visitors. See if you recognize yourself!


These wire sculptures represent a collective portrait of ordinary park visitors. During the first part of the project artists from  «Klub Risovalschikov» (drawers’ club) created sketches. They were drawn with a single line so that the drawings could be turned into wire sculptures by Dmitry Astafiev.

Project participants:
Gorky park visitors
Dasha Beglova
«Klub Risovalschikov» and Lavrenty Bruni
Dmitry Astafiev.

Now we are going to create 30 1.5-metre-high sculptures, which will be arranged in the park.
