Hearing about yourself after the cute epithet "snake under the skin" is unpleasant, offensive and very offensive for a woman. Meanwhile, underwater snakes can be very beautiful, graceful, and even very stylish, you just have to look at those reptiles, with the help of which the photographer and artist Guido Mocafico paints her amazing and slightly frightening pictures. No photoshop, no dyes, no deception, just a camera, sleight of hand, courage - and snakes… To be honest, until that day I had only to guess that there are so many beautiful snakes in the world. Multi-colored and monochromatic, striped and spotted, speckled and even polka-dotted - truly, the best artist in the world is nature, which gives birth to such amazing creatures that you can only admire, because touching this beauty can be life-threatening.
But the boldness of the city takes, and remembering this, Guido Mokafiko risked enlisting the support of poisonous girls (I suspect that not without the help of a specially trained person who knows how to handle snakes), in order to lay out pictures of amazing beauty, color and execution of them. Well, where else can you enjoy this mesmerizing sight?
In addition to snakes, Guido photographs furry spiders, skulls, outlandish still lifes, and also makes provocative-erotic photo shoots of men and women, and on top of that, he also has in his portfolio harmless mouth-watering projects that will surely appeal to all those with a sweet tooth.

Philosophical and satirical paintings about contemporary Russian realities by artist Andrey Shatilov
Nowadays, paintings filled with true deep philosophical meaning are quite rare. Therefore, the author's works of the Russian artist Andrey Shatilov evoke genuine interest among the modern viewer.
