Andrew Kalkov (1987) is an Ukrainian painter and street-artist. His sumless arts have strong emphasis on philosophical underpinnings and self-reflection. He works in Lutsk, the city of his birth.  

Since 2010, he has dedicated himself to creation of series of works “The Circulation”. According to the artist: ”The main symbol of this series is the spiral line - the eternal symbol of perception, one of the most popular worldwide ornamental decor through the centuries.”

Kalkov decided to use this profundus symbol and rearrange it into new modern forms and, more precisely, into art objects, created in 8-bit and op-art styles. “The Circulation” has one challenging feature - it dives inside and expands outside as the main aim of series does: everyone has to explore himself and find love and knowledge to share with outworld. Because The Love is the most multipurpose method to experience the world and the only way to increase his great power is to share it sincerely. As reference: the artist distributes works of this series within street-art tools and assets, in particular - stickers, posters and murals - their popularity and numbers are instantly increasing. At this moment, Kalkov has shared more than 50 000 entities and “The Circulation” graphics has circularised into clothes patterns, accessories, album covers, sketchbooks and literature illustrations.
