48 Hours in Kyiv By Sasha Kurmaz By Eytys
Eytys 48 hours in Kyiv by Sasha Kurmaz. Photographer and visual artist Sasha Kurmaz was born in Kiev in 1986, right after the notorious Chernobyl disaster. Although starting his artistic path as a graffiti artist, Kurmaz describes his work as ”photographic” regardless the medium; installations, paintings, video or producing photo zines. For Eytys SS’15 collection Kurmaz created this photo zine and patterns echoing slogans from the current Ukranian turmoil, urging pro- democracy and calling for civil rights. The patterns are seen on the Eytys Spring/Summer 2015 collection of printed sneakers, packaging and installations. The book launches Friday January 30th.
