Pokras Lampas is a Russian artist born in Korolyov in 1991. He is one of the most distinguished representatives of modern calligraphy.

Pokras Lampas started to create graffiti in 2008 and quickly found the inspiration in the “Calligraffiti” movement; thereafter he turned his focus on street calligraphy. Later, the artist was invited to become an official Calligraffiti ambassador while representing and continuing to work on his own style called “Calligrafuturism”. Pokras’ personal style, influenced by the Latin, Cyrillic, African, Arabic, Asian, American and ancient calligraphy styles, reveals his artistic vision of the multicultural calligraphy in future.

Pokras is actively experimenting with different styles of modern calligraphy by applying and combining his knowledge of street culture, design and typography of different cultures and styles. He is particularly involved in street art projects, exhibitions and other projects related to the central theme of his œuvre all over the world. Pokras takes part in many collaborations along with festivals and well-known brands, as well as participations in fashion weeks through art performances and works using new technologies.

Pokras Lampas also manages to gather a wide audience in the world by being very active on social and digital platforms. In 2019, he won the GQ Russia “MAN of the YEAR”: “NEWCOMER of the Year” award for his street art, fashion and cultural projects.

Pokras’ work has been recently displayed in many cultural institutions including museums, galleries as well as art projects in Russia, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, China, UK, USA and UAE.
