I assume those are different writers, who pick up same names in different cities. Observing such matches can lead us to some “basic graffiti vocabulary”, common words which are likely to be chosen as a graffiti writer nickname. Globalized nature of graffiti culture reveals.

If you search  for tagging tutorials in russian on YouTube, there’ll be loads of videos starting with 11 y.o. boy’s voice pronouncing: ‘First of all, pick a tag. Grab an english-russian dictionary and look through it to pick a word you like. Then grab a marker…”

"Premidiated matches" at "My Own Private Routes", Coexistence gallery
Aug 2014

Tags research expands and shifts to the field of language studies. I’m giving up mapping my home city to track the connections between different places I visit. An expanding archive, juxtaposing couples of tags captured in different cities in Russia and Europe, aims to reveal the hidden street visual poetry, explore the lingual potential of graffity tags. Graffity culture, which has always been based on writing, fonts , letters and names has been percieved as nothing more than a visual culture. Though, it’s extremely globalised and mostly uses english words, which create loads of name matches and constructed poetry with hundredes of kilometers between the first and the second line.

"Signal: art of the present" curated by Petr Beliy

'No future' as a credo might be seen in a pessimistic way, but this point of view is not exactly right. At least future does not yet exists phisically. Any attempt to predict and conform to the future would lead to nothing but dishonesty in art and living. Behaving honestly causes an urge for self-reflection and analysis. Video self-portraits captures uncertainty of the youth: non-doing, waiting, traveling, healing one's wounds. Being constantly trapped in between of several aims and ideas highly influences one's behavior. By representing that constant uncertainty, I declare those 'non-states' and 'non-doings' not as a waste of the precious lifetime, but as times of the purest living.
