Somari is a contemporary futurist artist whose visual art style is an offshoot of post-graffiti. Current artistic practices of the artist are centered around the creation of the plot and mythology of her own universe. This fantasy world is the author’s assumption of the birth of a new civilization, which could hypothetically develop as part of a singular scenario after the end of the world. In the center of the plot is a story about a technologically advanced civilization and a unique plant world. In the center of the plot is a story about a technologically advanced civilization and a unique plant world. The story delves into the conflict between the attempts of intelligent beings to dominate and control nature, playing the role of creator, and the preservation of culture, roots and identity. Each subsequent project will outline storylines and add new details to this world.

The canvases presented on the “Enter” art platform are dedicated to the scenes of the research of these fictional heroes. Visually, they look like a frozen frame of a moving visual element. Through these plots, the artist wants to reveal the context and introduce the viewer to the prerequisites of the author’s story, that is, it will be a kind of prequel.

The following plot develops on the canvases: three characters, researchers, study a strange flora that has evolved by growing metal parts due to the threat of the advance of technological civilization. A fourth mysterious character, who is the reincarnation of the most famous image of the artist outside of this story, watches the development of events. These scenes immerse you in the mythology of the virtual world and are the beginning of a story, the beginning of a great exploration, an adventure, as well as a reflection on the relationship between technology and nature, between an intelligent being and the environment.

On these canvases, viewers can see only a two-dimensional image of a multidimensional world of the distant future. There are controlled errors in volumes and perspective in the image, due to the fact that the laws of perspective that we are used to do not work in this world, so this is how all attempts to visualize multidimensionality on a flat object will look.

The title: “Several ends of the world after that” refers to the explanation of when and how the existence of such a fantastic and unlike any other world is possible.

Stamping is primarily work with a matrix. Stamping is impossible without a matrix. Linoleum, metal, plastic, cutters, needles… Of course, today there are technologies that do not require traditional tools, but actually working with a matrix and a press creates a certain magic. We take good paper, moisten it, then dry it. We hammer paint into the matrix, under the pressure of the press, the matrix enters the paper — this is a completely different field, a different state. To use an analogy with literature, painting is like novels, while graphics are more like short stories.

In 1994, the Lviv National Academy of Arts first established a department and then a department of industrial graphics, today it is a department of graphic design. From the very beginning, a printmaking workshop was organized at 23 Virmenska Street. The first head of the department, Bohdan Soroka, was especially active. He looked for machine tools and other equipment, worked together with students. At first, linocuts were performed – black and white and color. From some time they began to study etching on metal. Monotype and dry needle techniques were gradually introduced. Dry needling was quite expensive, the number of students was large, it was difficult to work with metal, so we switched to a more environmentally friendly material – plexiglass. Now this material is used all over the world and the results are simply fantastic. Subsequently, a combination of digital printing with classical techniques was introduced. With the development of graphic design, the interest of students began to shift from traditional tools to the computer room. It was necessary to find a connection between the computer and classical graphics. These were free topics so that students could feel more comfortable in the new format.

Today, we combine classic graphics with design in the form of art books, which include illustrations on any topic in various techniques combined with font graphics.

Students who come to the workshop on Armenska note a peculiar creative aura that reigns there. It is the smell of printing ink, traditional tools and machines of the 19th century. All this has a positive effect on the perception of the educational process. If in the first year the main task of the teacher is to give the students the opportunity to master the technical aspects, then already in the second year many reveal themselves and demonstrate excellent results.

If in the first year the main task of the teacher is to give the students the opportunity to master the technical aspects, then already in the second year many reveal themselves and demonstrate excellent results. We try to minimally interfere in their work, not to drive student creativity and potential into some framework. We are happy when everyone is different in their vision and nature of perception. After all, diversity is one of the elements of creativity.
