A Passion for Calligraphy

hand letters by pokras lampas

For some time now, it has been apparent the number of great modern calligraphists from Russia. One is Sergey Shapiro who was commissioned to design Illusion’s logo (as you see at the top-left of screen). Another is Pokras Lampas from Moscow who did wonderful body art pieces last April, and his latest lettering work is shown here with the typical street art flair.
