8GB – T-Shirt design
Comissioned by the 8bitpeoples netlabel from New York for a limited run of 50 units, ЕЛИТА is a work inspired on the codes and symbolism of the russian mafia and their graphic representation as tattoos, widely seen across jails all over Russia.
Mixing the religious imprint of the tattoos with the urban attitude of graffiti, this piece talks about an entity, of machine origin, part of the most closed elite in Russia. With 7 convictions for crimes against humanity and highly regarded among its peers, proudly shows its strong beliefs and principles based on its humble roots, as well as its peculiar faith as a thinking machine.
