Russia - State N°73

I've decided to depict my home town through the portrait of this guy in a tracksuit. I've been based in Milan, Italy, for the past 8 years, despite originally coming from Ulyanovsk, Russia. Otherwise known as the 73 region, Ulyanovsk is known for its citizens' love of tracksuits: not just in their enthusiasm for sports, but also in their everyday wear. Living this far from home for so long now, often it's details like these that make me warmly recall the place I grew up in. This reminiscence isn't without its drawbacks. Often, I worry for the future of Ulyanovsk, because of the level of the unemployment and the boredom around the young part of the population.

Mila Leva started her creative career while studying in the academy of fine arts, making portrait engravings on tomb stones. Now she is an art director and illustrator based in Milan, Italy, and she mostly draws alive people on the surface of an iPad. She gets inspiration from analog technology and very often gets back to crafts, applying a versatile style and creative approach to any of her projects.
