Go to Sochi for Vacation was the first of a series of images used for cans of the legendary Zhiguli beer. Inspired by Aleksandr Deyneka’s beach pieces from the 1930s, Barykin created a narrative intended to instill the joy of drinking beer on the beach while on vacation. The figure of the chess player is a collective image of heroes of the comedic films of Leonid GaidaiA moving, 3-D image – a lenticular print – is created using micro-lenses and printing software. It gives a dimension of depth to the space or creates the illusion of movement and shows different images when viewed from different angles.
