Vladimir Sulyagin

To begin my animation I started off using silouetes of arms, legs, hands and feet cut out from paper. I was notified by eleanor of an artist named Vladimir Sulvagin who works in a loose collage style called paper spirits and immediately fell in love with his way of capturing the characters of people just using simple bits of paper in a very minimalistic approach. He only uses a very limited amount of colour on each piece.


  1. Hi, Jane! I was delighted to see your post on Vladimir Sulagin as I am a friend of his. Vladimir lives in Moscow and is very active now (he was keeping quite profile for almost fifteen years working on his theoretical books). As a matter of fact I am mounting his solo exhibition (oils and collages) at a corporate gallery I manage in Moscow. It'll open on November 13th. I am sure Vladimir will be delighted to get in touch with you and eleanor. He does not speak English but I could serve as a translator (unless you speak Russian). My name is Ruslan Kassabov. You can write to me at Looking forward to hearing from you

  2. i have been looking for websites on him for ages i was wondering if you knew any that weren't just about his artwork but also his life.
