Sinii Karandash is an anonymous artist who for more than a decade has been leaving statements on walls and other surfaces across the world.
His signature element comprises laconic and witty phrases commenting on space and time and referring to the events and conditions that affect each of us, both separately and together.
The artist touches on themes of public memory and its forms and the life and death of historical heritage, and explores methods of pointed poetization of reality and the effects of random social and artistic interactions.
In Garage Shop you can purchase a limited edition of spherical mirrors entitled Comment on Your Reflection, which incorporate the artist’s signature blue inscriptions.
