TEAM RUSSIA

Aleksei Moskalev, Mikhail Erushev, Vitaly Progovorov

Introduction

Tell us about your team; who are you and where do you come from?

We are team of two architects (wannabe sculptors) and one artist. We are coming from the most mystical and stereotyped place in Russia - Siberia. Our captain Aleksei currently working as a project architect in Düsseldorf, Mikhail is based in Novosibirsk and having an occupation as a chief architect, Vitaly is based in another city of Siberia region - Omsk and makes amazing works in photography. We share common interests in fine arts, crafts and many more things.

Team History

How long have you worked together and what are your team's greatest achievements?

The first time we performed at snow sculpting contests in 2011 in Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan. That was a fantastic event to be involved in so we joined it in 2012 once again. After 6 years of committing to personal projects and practices we reunited for Baltic Snow Call in 2018 and eventually became first Baltic Snow Call champions! This year we are expanding as a team and welcoming new member Vitaly to join us!

About Snow Sculpting

How did you end up carving snow and what is best in snow sculpting?

At some point we just gave it a shot. And every event we attended ever since was very uplifting exiting experience! I would say we are really exited about the challenges behind our creations, from concept and first sketches to planing and final execution. Being demanding mentally and very physically engaging sculpting in snow just feels cool and badass. It is very emotionally rewarding when you know you did a good job! What is more it is an opporunity to test and practice our artistic ideas. And as it was mentioned before, snow sculpting events are quite special, especially when it comes to people you meet there and atmosphere.

Baltic Snow Call?!

What do you expect from Baltic Snow Call?

We expect high quality snow cubes, bunch of creative people from all over the world, crazy artworks, excitement, warm welcoming and hard work! As well as tons of fun and Rock' n' roll of course, hangovers and sauna parties! We are expecting to meet all the cool people that are coming, the ones we already know and those we yet to meet for the first time!
