Monday hero: Mai Miturich

I know absolutely nothing about the Russian artist and illustrator Mai Miturich, except what I just found on the internet:

Miturich ( 1925-2008) was the son of two artists, Petr Miturich and Vera Khlebnikova. In Russia he is a well known and loved artist. 


I used to buy cheap Eastern European picturebook sometimes as a student, for their lovely, and in my eyes very foreign illustrations. I don't have all of them anymore.

Was one of those maybe by Miturich? Surely I would have kept it?

His work is clear and poetic, and very 'mid-century' as we now call it.

I'll see if I can find something by him now.

    gaaf hé, die vrijheid in z'n lijnen en hoe hij speelt met vlakken. Ik heb hem net pas ontdekt en nu door hem jouw werk. Leuk om te bekijken allemaal.
