Moscow-based tattoo artist Stanislaw Wilczynski produces shape-centric imagery that is born out of the Digimatism movement. Digimatism, a combination of the words “digital” and “suprematism,” describes his bold abstract assemblages that are created with the help of the computer. This contemporary approach has a historic bend to it by recalling artistic movements from the early 20th century. “It’s a fusion of Russian suprematism, German minimalism and futuristic Japanese ambience,” he writes. “A future visual language.” The tattoos are akin to architecture, displaying strong lines and compositional constructions that mimic roads, skyscrapers, and other motifs found in cityscapes.
