Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Dmitry Lamonov

Dmitry Lamonov is an artist from St. Petersburg, Russia who combines tradition and modernity in his calligraphy.

Lamonov was born in 1987 in Leningrad, and in 2008 began his career as a graphic designer.His work has been inspired by Old Slavonic letterforms, characterized by motives of Russian culture — elements of Russian ornaments and traditional Russian writing (ligature).These motifs, combined with modern graphics, create a distinctive, recognizable style.Having studied the basics of the traditional Russian writing, Lamonov saw the potential in it and was so fascinated that he started using the basics in his various artworks.“It inspires me to combine the incompatible,” Lamonov explains.“My principle is that there’s always a concept behind a work, preferably one easy to be comprehended. And the form through which you comprehend this idea is secondary, but still of no less importance.“My form of expressing ideas is basically calligraphy and printing.”More of Dmitry Lamonov‘s unique calligraphy can be found at and
