Anton Mariinsky

Yesterday at the Mariinsky flat, I was struck by the peculiar shade of green from the kitchen walls, lit by 3 candles. I start noticing the carefully crafted atmosphere with details. "All dishware and cups are handmade", there's a very old wall clock overlooking the wooden table and the food he is cooking is the proper pairing for these beers, kept at the balcony for ideal temperature. It's winter in Moscow. After the great kuritza with kartoshki and грибы, it's time to perform Big In Japan on acoustic guitar. Maybe because he should actually be big in Japan, it sounds just great.
We talked about how he learned german at bars in Berlin after school. We are now at his favorite bar in Moscow. It'll be until the sun comes up.

Anton Mariinsky is a Moscow-based graphic artist and illustrator whose work merges contemporary visual language with historical influences.

Mariinsky's bold illustrations have been recognized internationally, with awards from the Society for News Design and the European Design Awards. Clients like The Moscow News, Greenpeace Russia, and Yandex underscore his range. His commitment to artistic exploration is evident in his teaching practice and his prolific participation in exhibitions across Europe and Asia.
