Denys Metelin is an active participant in the Lviv association “Dyed Fox” engaged in modern street art and graffiti. Participants of “Dyed Fox” are involved in the organization of numerous art festivals in Lviv.

Thus, in early summer, within the framework of the open public platform “Studio of the city” Denys implemented the idea of a street art – trolleybus: according to the eco-theme of the event, he painted the city trolleybus No. 3.

“Trolleybus is an environmentally sound transport mode, that's why it was decided to paint it on eco-theme. I prepared a lot of sketches and, as a result, it came out a kind of synthesis – a joint and interpenetration of architecture and nature and vice versa,” the artist says.

Residents of the city positively reacted to the innovation. You bet! It is the only one such trolleybus in Lviv.

In addition, the young author actively keeps on working on the development of the cartoon “2027”. He told: “This cartoon is about the world of the future. Not far off, because taking into account the rapid development of the modern world and technology, it is clear that the dramatic changes are just around the corner.”

First, Denys wrote a script, then it became clear that it’s too big for one cartoon, therefore it’s planned to make three plots.

“At the gallery “Dyed Fox” we have already created an installation –  a model of the city, in which we will soon film the doll-characters,” the artist shares. “The viewers can see that in my works, there are objects that resemble balls. These are actually police drones – drones of supervisors. The idea is that artificial intelligence – humanity invention, can become so developed that a person can fall under its influence in the near future.”

The work on the first part of the cartoon Denys plans to finish closer to the new year. Besides, he will implement other interesting projects as well.
