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.

About author

The artist immerses the viewer in the idyllic Soviet Stagnation, where a life-affirming song by Muslim Magomaev blares from a transistor radio.
