Kosta and Karina paint houses, fences and even abandoned subway stations. And they’re preparing to open the first art club in South Ossetia
Street art is still a new phenomenon for South Ossetia. It seems as though Kosta Jyoty and Karina Dzigoeva are the only artists here who like graffiti. They studied together at the local art school, and now the work together at the Ministry of Culture. He is a choreographer by profession, she is an architect.
Karina and Kosta’s work begins at night. They turn on their projector (which they borrowed), shine it on the wall they have chosen for the mural, sketch out the design, and then start painting in the morning.
The two of them have already made many graffiti murals all over town. Dancing Ossetians in national garments, huge portraits of famous Ossetian Soviet generals, and sometimes bouncing balls and cute animals.
