Filipp (FI2K) - Russian street artist, working primarily with stencils.
He was born January 6th, 1990 in the Russia's Far East.
Since 2012, he is based in Saint-Petersburg.
More than 15 years Filipp works in stencil technique. He was always attracted by street art, and stencils became his favorite creative tool, despite the fact that process might be very time-consuming.
All of his stencils Filipp cuts manually, putting into each work a piece of his soul. The artist compares such a long process of making stencils with meditation.
He always tries to experiment and make his work more complex, paying a lot of attention to detail. Recently, Filipp finds inspiration in the Renaissance art and tries to combine stories of different times in his works.
Filipp believes that art should evoke emotions and be understandable and accessible to most viewers.
