“Weird Tales” echoes the meaning of the fictitious artistic name Interesni Kazki, for those who understand Ukrainian and familiar with the work of the famous duo. Initially formed by the duo Waone and Aec, Interesni Kazki translates to Interesting Fairy Tales. After over 15 years of collaborative work, the duo split up. Both artists are successful in their separate careers but their work develops differently. Thus, Waone began to experiment with black and white on the walls. At the same time, he keeps surprising us with the unusual and imaginative range of characters, elements, and symbols of bright colors. Weird Tales is the series of painted and drawn stories. It consists of different artworks with their own worlds and shows to spectators various aspects of the reinvented surreal universe. Each artwork is like a seed, which could be grown into a big tree of many other stories. Similarly to the whimsical vintage covers of the popular American fantasy and horror fiction magazine, Weird Tales collection by Waone represents different stages of his work.
Represented by numerous of independent galleries and museums devoted to such big artists as surrealist Salvador Dalí and glass artist Dale Chihuly, rank St. Petersburg, FL as one of the most attractive art destinations. Museum on the streets where everybody can see work of Internationally accomplished artists for free, SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival, even strengthens this position for years to come.
