Alex Andreev is a Saint Petersburg based designer. He and his artworks have been published in many different design magazine and presented in exhibitions. His artworks overtly play with the one’s perception of reality! In one side, it is possible to taste a dystopic world in his artwork, on the other side, his sci-fi like digital designs make one feels like in a different world that s/he desires to live in!

He describes his works and working process as following:

“ ’.. the nagual Elias went to his dreaming journeys the way a wild animal prowls for food… visited, let’s say, the junkyard of innity… and copied whatever he saw, but never knew what those things were used for, or their source’.

These Carlos Castaneda’s words from his ‘Power Of Silence’ are the closest description of my perception of creation process. Never did I – and never will – take the creation as a product of man’s intellect. Instead I take it as activity aiming to x certain states of comprehension I experienced in my childhood, in my dreams, etc. David Linch would dene this as the journey of the intuition. I never discuss how this mechanism works – I am inclined neither to mysticism nor to intellectual speculations. However human brain is the most complex thing ever created in the Universe, and our conscious awareness is only a thin lm in the ocean of unconsciousness. Everything is possible in this ocean. I work and I get back to those states of comprehension, to my childhood memories, to my dreams. I experience them again and again. This is my only motivation to do what I do.”

It is possible to see more from Andreev in his website. Additionally, you can download some high-quality artworks of him there!
