Fire! Fire! Fire!!
Being a slight pyromaniac myself, I couldn’t resist posting about this artist. The 23 year old Russian artist Radya Timofey has quite a collection of street art credited to his name already, but “Eternal Fire” has to be one of his best! Since doing this installation, he’s already created 2 more but his use of fire has gotten me all giddy. So “Eternal Fire” is the artwork I’m going to focus on.
The memory of the victory erases the memory of the terrific beginning of war (WWII). How was the fighting – everyone was – putting their faces in fire.
And how did they let the war happen? It’s repeating.

Pictures were transfered to the base, varying density of bandages give different tones of color.
After the burning we have removed the rest of bandages. It’s simple.

The final installation is displayed on the walls of a WW2 hospital in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
Being a guy that likes fire(!) as much as I do…I was truly inspired by this art installation. So, Radya Timofey for your balls, artistic vision and creative use of fire(!) Give Us Art! salutes you!
Art the World (with fire!)
