When You Think Of Home

a poster about Saint Petersburg




I joined a new collective of artists visualizing their interpretation of home. Here’s my take.

I live in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It’s a wonderful city where it’s almost always raining and the strong wind is blowing. When I think of home I think of the days when I come home from journeys to sunny countries. I remember the taste of the air and the smell of the rain, old noisy tramways on streets so gray that they almost blend with the gray sky. I love the mixture of love and melancholy I feel at these moments.
