An artist of Tartaric decent, Soka Slasova developed her deconstructed floral motifs within the urban decay of her hometown of Dzhankoy, in the Crimean Peninsula.
Curious to the point of drawing the ire of her parents, Slasova found herself wandering her environment, isolated and unsupervised. Her eyes and hands became guidance, as she began to scratch landscape drawings into the husks of derelict military equipment. Rusty hunks of steel became her inspiration, as nature crept and swaddled the debris in brush. The myriad of wild things contrasted sharply against the rhythms of scattered machinery, and provided the visual material to hone ideas of color and design theory.
