Famous Russian artist - illustrator for books. My name is Igor Sakurov. This is my real name and by my main profession I am a book illustrator. For a long time I have been working with the famous writer Boris Akunin. In my work I try to give a poetic sense to the ordinary things, looking at them with fresh sight. Like for example the casually tossed clothes, crumpled gloves, whimsical reflection of the person in the window - all of this can be very interesting and full of unexpected meaning. If I am going for a journey I am always having with me my easel with paints or sometimes just the album and a pencil. Here in my online gallery there are series devoted to different cities as a part of the Venetian collections. Please do not hesitate to choose what you love for your home and ask me any question if you have any requests, I will be pleased to answer you.
