Vladim’s world | AU79

Usually depicted as young and graceful European maidens, nymphs are the female deities behind the inspiration of this new series. Willing to portray these unique and beautiful spirits who animate nature, Vladim presents “Au79”. He brings his own twist to his portrayal, as his perception of the divine being is beautifully enriched with melanin. By doing so, Vladim forces viewers to broaden or even alter the way we view built in images of such deities-who are essentially, solely spirits- but are rarely represented through differing Eurocentric physicality traits.

“Au” as the chemical symbol of Gold and “79” its atomic number, the paradox within usage of the element brings out a significant reminder. Her physical expression of pain is also the ornament enhancing her delicacy. We hope you enjoy the series as much as we did, here are more photos after the jump.
