STENOGRAFFIA
Ekaterinburg, Russia

St. Petersburg is a beautiful, magnificent city, each strucco work here is unique and incredibly beautiful. This year we just get acquainted with the Northern capital, try it on the tooth and try to make friends with this stately gentleman in a strict gray coat.

It would have been pure impudence for us to create something new here. That's why we decided to emphasize what St. Petersburg already has and to do it in our own way, but with great respect to the city, its inhabitants and their reverential attitude to all its elements.

"Shadows of the Great" appeared on one of the buildings of the Russian National Library. When nightfall comes, on the facade of the building at 37 Nevsky Prospect you can see the portraits of Russian writers who turned the world of literature upside down, the portraits of outstanding writers who are famous throughout the world:

Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin
Nikolay Vasilyevich Gogol
Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
Fedor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky

Works that won recognition throughout the world issued from their pen. Their bronze and marble monuments can be found in any Russian city, but they haven't been drawn with shadow yet.
