Abstract Comics.
April 3rd, 2009 by Lex


Six pages of Alexey’s art are featured in Abstract Comics: The Anthology, edited by Andre Molotiu. Andre and Alexey met at the 2008 MoCCA festival, and since then developed and evolved a piece shown at the event into an exploration of visual exposition. The anthology is published by Fantagraphics, and will be available at the end of June on Amazon, and in stores (like the Strand). It will even feature a comic by R. Crumb!

This is beyond doubt a ground-breaking and unique publication, and you are highly encouraged to check it out once available. Alexey’s work is also part of the anthology’s cover design (background for “Abstract”), and an exhibition may be in the cards.  

Additionally, a dedicated blog has been set up to discuss the topic of abstraction within graphic narratives. The participants on the blog are authors featured in the anthology, promising a beautiful, interesting and collaborative environment to delve beyond the frontier. Already there are quite a few outstanding contributions.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

We’re back, and aim to be better than ever. If you are in the New York area, you can catch Alexey Sokolin at the MoCCA exhibition/convention this Sunday. He is displaying the 4-Panel Story project, along with works by Alexander Rothman, Andrea Tsurumi and Peter Quach. Perhaps their art will make it onto this site in a bit.

A further application from the above project is below: all 57 panels superimposed over each other. Over the next few weeks, Alexey will be working on 2 more pieces like this for a potential abstract comic anthology.
