If we talk about multi-faceted talented individuals, then we can safely cite Pavel Vlasov as an example. Although this name won't tell you much, because everyone knows this wonderful man as Pavlik Lemtybozh. Poet, writer, satirist, musician, gallery owner — it's all about him. But the most famous facet of Lemtybozh's talents are his drawings with unusual, sometimes absurd signatures.
Everyone has probably seen Pavlik Lemtybozh's unusual drawings. You can stumble upon them in all social networks without exception and on many entertainment sites. Many of them live separately from the author and have become "folk" memes. The author is not vain and extremely generous — he fully approves of the leakage of his masterpieces to the masses.
Many users, having stumbled upon Pavel's drawings and texts by chance, become devoted fans of his work. There are many legends about the origin of the creative pseudonym Lemtybozh. But it turned out to be quite simple. Lemtybozh in the Komi language means "the end of the cherry island". This is the name of the village in Vuktylsky district of the Komi Republic.
The artist's works are similar to children's drawings. It is worth admitting that not everyone likes them. Someone considers Lemtybozh's work primitive, and he himself a mad graphomaniac. But accepting or rejecting something is a personal matter for everyone. On the web and in real life, Pavlik is loved and considered the most original creative of Peter.
You can get acquainted with the work of Lemtybozh in his Facebook group. And for those who live in In St. Petersburg, the best way to join the beautiful and funny will be a visit to the art gallery "Pig's Snout". There you can get acquainted with the works of Pavlik, as well as with paintings, drawings and sculptures by other contemporary artists, for example, Nikolai Kopeikin.
And no one has yet regretted that he went to the concert of the band "Tales of the Forest", in which a comprehensive Lemtybozh is properly controlled with a drum kit. The guys make good, unusual music and an interesting show.
Someone thinks that the works of Pavlik Lemtybozh are absolutely apolitical and affect only everyday issues. But this is not the case. It is enough to look closely at the characters of the drawings and everything becomes clear. The artist does not spare anyone, but he does it very subtly. Let's take a look at the author's new works and try to guess what he wants to tell us.
