Calligrapher artist, creator of the handwritten script “A.S. Pushkin”, the founder of the author’s school of calligraphy and the Museum of Russian National Handwriting Yuri Ivanovich Arutsev was filmed at work. The video includes footage taken in April of this year. At this time, Yuri Ivanovich was actively working on the series “The Necklace of Russian Cities”, which, according to his plan, should be composed of 160 paintings.
Currently, the works of Yuri Ivanovich reflected the images of Yaroslavl, St. Petersburg, Veliky Novgorod, Arkhangelsk, Veliky Ustyug, Sevastopol, Smolensk, Bryansk, Ryazan, Voronezh. In the video frames, the first capital of the Old Russian state, Staraya Ladoga, emerges from under the pen of the master. In each picture, the name of the city is written in a sophisticated “A.S. Pushkin” style, and is decorated with a bright cascade of monograms and woven into the graphic image of the central cathedral, which has become the main symbol of the city.
"What is it done for?" asks Alexander Zolotarev, one of the authors of the video.
“This question cannot be answered,” says Yuri Arutsev. “For the Fatherland. Nobody has done it before. Unfortunately, there is no such selection anywhere in the world. But we have it! ”
