Eastern European art has always had a very distinct style. It’s the pure and sharp, sometimes almost brutal style many of them use. Same with Russian illustrator Dima Rebus. His work is pretty frank and critical, no disguise. But you still get a bit of a mystical and vague feeling when you look at his work realizing somehow that there is a lot more hidden in these watercolor illustrations than you thought in first place.
