World leading calligraphy artist Pokras Lampas breaks fashion frontiers with his new capsule collection made in collaboration with Saint-Petersburg Fashion Store “DLT” (formal store of Russian Empire Guards Society, 1908-1916). For this case, Pokras, famous for his love to huge scales, live-painted a 30sq meters of denim and cloth during the fully packed event. The concept of collection lays in the intersection of ready-made thing, brush strokes, the work of artist and the high tempo of modern time. No doubts exclusive hoodies and cardigans are going to be sold out in a few hours today. To show the connection with a place, in his case - Saint-Petersburg, Pokras denied online sales for this collection. But world-wide fan base can still purchase his merch on @pokrasofficial
Obsessed with black and white, the contrast is the source of his creativity, fascinated by the pop art movement and our contemporary pop culture, Nairone use elements from everyday life, his work is inspired by personal experiences from his childhood and the links with the milieu in which he lives mixed with his contrasted vision.

Russian Calligrafiturism artist Pokras Lampas spent 500 l of yellow paint, 1250 sq.m of calligraphy for the fabulous "F.. is for Fendi" campaign performed on the top of monumental HQ of Fendi in Rome at Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana (Colosseo Quadrato)
An official Calligraffiti ambassador (and freak), Pokras Lampas is blurring the frontiers with his brushes and paint buckets. He is one of the most talented modern artists, and is totally rewriting stuff through Calligrafuturism, his personal way of expressing his version of our uber-global and sometimes-crazy world. This globetrotter is also spreading the word about modern calligraphy and collaborating with crazy cool brands and artists.
He realized the biggest Calligraffiti in Italy on FENDI rooftop at Palazzo Della Civiltà Italiana, reinterpreting the F IS FOR…manifesto throughout freedom of expression, art, culture and optimism all around!
Not only he’s a super fly freak – who happens to love Kanye West – but he is also an incredible masterpiece machine. Pokras Lampas captures, creates, interprets and simply makes magic magic.
Totally goosebumps-worthy, his time in Rome with the F is For… crew was so rad, filled with an intense, gigantic-lettered poem, shapes and lines that basically set the standard once again for what we label as authentic talent.
