Our Gallery: In Memory of a Friend

25 Feb

In 2007, a series of black & white images was presented to the members of LiveJournal Dieselpunk community. The author, Vladimir Ozerny, explained that most of the artwork was created long before he had been exposed to dieselpunk – or dieselpunk had been exposed to him.

His pictures, rough and expressive, looked amateurish and even primitive when put together with paintings and graphics of Keith Thompson or Dusso. His comments were simplicity itself. But behind this deceptive image was a man of the world inspired by Futurism and Vorticism, Art Deco and revolutionary posters. A man in love with aviation, automobiles and skyscrapers. A visionary who didn’t care much about public opinion.

On January 31, 2012, Vladimir had a stroke. And died. He was 49 years old. Let his memory be blessed.

Here’s a small gallery of Vladimir Ozerny’s drawings and compositions, taken from his blog.
