Rustam QBic’s Storybook-Like Murals Feature Cryptic Imagery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

A prominent player in Russia’s burgeoning street art scene, Rustam QBic paints enormous walls that feature colorful, illustration-inspired imagery that stands out against the bright snow. The artist recently painted a mural called “Blossom” in Nizhny Novgorod for New City, the metropolis’s first street art festival. “Blossom” alludes to the power of the imagination. As they hunch over their books, three boys’ heads bloom into pink peonies. QBic’s storybook-like murals often feature youthful characters navigating their surreal settings, where mundane objects often transform into dreamlike amalgamations of symbols. Take a look at some of QBic’s latest murals below.
