Known from championing local street artists like 0331c, Barabakaa, HERMAN IX, Igor Mukhin and Ilya Piganov, BELIEF Moscow has now announced an exhibition pop-up with renowned Russian street artist Kirill Lebedev (KTO).

Located in a space under the Crimean Bridge (Krymskiy Most) in central Moscow, the project continues the Moscow retailer’s relationship with art gallery NOTFOUND. KTO was invited to take over the location and create two canvases and display a series of graphics.

Visitors will be treated to over 50 works from the period of 2019-2020 that express Kirill KTO’s trademark style that mixes text and questions written in colorful “dancing” letters, bizarre creatures and symbolic characters. To support the exhibition, BELIEF has also prepared a limited-edition capsule collection of T-shirts, patches and a metal stencil paying artistic tribute to the store’s logo. The accompanying commemorative release will be limited to just 50 sets.

With the exhibition pop-up, BELIEF Moscow looks to showcase the variety of interaction formats in the community of designers and artists. Bringing together art and fashion has always been part of BELIEF’s philosophy.

Check out scenes from the BELIEF Moscow pop-up and accompanying commemorative release above, also head over to BELIEF Moscow’s website to shop some of Kirill Lebedev (KTO) works.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, visits to the space are possible only by appointment in advance. Appointments can be made on BELIEF Moscow’s website or by phone +7 495 762 29 88.

Kirill Lebedev (KTO) interview Полное интервью на сайте BELIEF: ссылка в профиле . Кирилл Лебедев (КТО) – культовая фигура московской граффити-сцены, известен не только как художник, автор разноплановых работ, но и как один из немногих теоретиков и кураторов стрит-арта. В своем стремлении создать более рефлексивную, интеллектуальную и выразительную уличную культуру Лебедев периодически объявляет «войну» бессмысленным разновидностям граффити, в то же время постоянно пересматривая собственные представления и методы. .

Зарегистрироваться возможно на сайте. . Открытие выставки с 17:00 до 22:00 . Проект стал продолжением сотрудничества с московской галереей уличного искусства NOTFOUND, куда BELIEF временно переехал с конца марта до середины июня из-за реконструкции здания магазина в Леонтьевском переулке. Тогда Кирилл (КТО) расписал пространство галереи, которая находится на 16-м этаже жилого комплекса с панорамным видом на город. . Специально для нового пространства BELIEF художник написал два холста и подготовил серию графики –– это более 50 работ на бумаге и кальке, созданных в 2019–2020 годах. . #кириллкто #beliefmoscow #notfoundgallery
