Ukrainian street artist Kislow is making waves in the art world with his innovative designs and edgy palettes. Utilizing the shape, silhouette and curvature for the buildings, Kislow selects his canvases to enhance his characters and their interaction with the urban landscape. Characters peek around the corners of dark alleys and huddle in shadowy corners of abandoned warehouses adding to the overall drama of his designs.

Kislow favors vibrant bursts of colors that violently cut through his largely monochromatic designs; favoring punchy reds in one design and electric greens in another. Enhancing the visual impact of the Ukraine's concrete jungles, Kislow has create imaginative pieces, which hold compelling snippets of larger narratives that the viewer is left to dream up.

Transforming the drab landscape of man-made structures into a vivacious story book, Kislow's street art compellingly interacts with its surroundings.
