TIMA RADYA. HEY YOU LOVE ME. 2015

Facade, acrylic paint

Among contemporary Russian street-artists, Tima Radya is one of the most bright ones. He finds the ideas for his aphoristic works in anonymous writings on walls, in overheard conversations and his favorite poems.

Tima Radya found the writing "hey you love me" on a wall of a garage in the Vtoraya Rechka neighborhood when he visited Vladivostok in 2015 to explore the city’s space and context for participating in Zarya Artist-in-Residence Program. Even though the artist came to Vladivostok with an initially different idea of a future artwork, he changed it in favor of Hey You Love Me, whichin the end has become a "signature" artwork of Zarya CCA.

Another artwork made by Tima Radya in Vladivostok is a poetic text that goes spirally around the inner surface of the geodesic dome’s semisphere on the territory of Morskoe (Marine) Cemetery.
