RUSSIA— When Alexandra Khitrova, a Russian motion graphic artist, began creating illustrations and fantasy art that explore science and myth about a year ago, little did she know she was on the path to stardom. Just a year after, Khitrova, is generating a lot of interest online and gaining attention from publishers and movie producers across the globe. Although an artists who finds great interesting in painting, Khitrova recent incursion into illustration was engendered by the creative impulse to explore the digital tools she acquired over the years. The artworks that have emerged from Khitrova’screative venture into digital art have become major points of attention amongst artists, illustrator and designers.

Many of Khitrova’s artworks were influenced by myths imbued with spiritual sensibilities. One of the works titled Kangaroo borrows from the Australian myth that says the land was inhabited by huge creatures, from which came all other animals. In her digital art rendition of this myth, Khitrova combines the past with the present. Behind a troop of Kangaroos galloping through a desert are two huge white Kangaroos. While these two white kangaroos give credence to this myth that many Australians hold as true, they also appear as guardian spirits watching over the mob of kangaroos and the land.

The Rainbow Serpent also pays homage to an Australian myth, which references the circle of seasons and the importance of water to human existence. Although the Rainbow Serpent is a common symbol in Aboriginal art, Khitrova illustrations bring to bear the relation between the Rainbow Serpent and human survival. In Khitrova artwork, the Rainbow Serpent acts as the vector for rain, necessary for growth and regeneration. Khitrov’s recent art projects feature humans, animals, and mythical creatures.
