Ivan Arkhipov (RU)
Ivan Arkhipov is a Moscow-based artist with a background in graphic design. In 2011, he started to develop video shorts where he combines printed graphics and video art. Arkhipov’s video work, A walk uses a classical print technique in black and white as frames for his animation. These are single-frame animations made from graphic prints using drypoint engraving, and hand printed with an intaglio press. The film shorts are composed of 1000 prints integrated into the short film, which makes his works all the more interesting.
