Art offers people the opportunity to explore and indulge in impossible possibilities, which is best exemplified by Philipp Igumnov's work. Through his clever photographic collages, Philipp Igumnov creates surreal situations that boggle the mind and leave his viewers wondering, "What if?" At times hilarious and other times simply eccentric, his work shows the possibilities art gives a mind to construct its own realities.

Hailing from Moscow, Russia, Philipp Igumnov is a 21 year-old designer, although his work would suggest that he were much older. He clearly holds a fascination with retro images, references and posters. The vintage vibe present in the majority of Philipp Igumnov's work shows that young artists are looking to the past for inspiration as much as (and maybe even more than) they are looking to the future.
