This artwork from the series tells the story of Pangea Ultima, or Pangea Proxima, a hypothesized future supercontinent which could occur within the next 200-300 million years, when, according to certain forecasts, most of the world's landmass would be joined. What is in store for its dwellers, what fate awaits them? Will animality win humanity or will animals turn into humans? Is it good or bad? What kind of a society will it be? Who we are and what will become of us? In Pangea Ultima series the iconography takes on a new signifiicancy; its genesis is of absolute totality; it goes beyond the border of artwork. From between the folded tissue of the ornamental iconography stems a fabled and symbolic narrative, where mythic, religious and pseudoscientific elements are mingled.
Vladimir Grig inherited his illustrational skillset from traditional soviet practices, spending numerous years perfecting his image of artistic creation. The majority of his works contain a slight twist on graphical design which includes images from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Using technological advancements as well as historical artistic perspectives, Grig connects the everyday lives of our past, our present, and our future. Drawing the most inspiration from within him; dreams, memories, and fantasies about an idealistic and romantic past are a driving force behind his artworks. Grig’s allusions that life, time, and beings in existence are a cyclical phenomenon suggest a unique perspective rarely attempted. At the same time his art contains mysticism which is characteristic of early Russian literature from the beginning of the 20th century.
