Just a perfect example to show the differences between Satyrykon individualities. Bogucka, as usual, in three colours (already her trade mark), here intensive enough to show the level of emotions. Dynamics, the wealth of details and apparent chaos – obviously well-thought-of. The characters – quite a big range of social and generation types, strongly individualised, a bit not contemporary. The side ones spark some trashy associations (a monkey? “Salto mortale” acrobat? a fortune teller?), though the hurdles runner in the centre tips the scales to sport.
Andrei Popov also has some sporty associations – how different they are though. His “Sales” is the metaphoric power of peace. It’s perfectly ordered with the repetitiveness of elements and harmony of colours. The characters are purposely not individualised. And on the top, that perfect crawl style in which his characters pace the starting lanes of clothes pool… Nobody can say it’s just about the fact that these two go to different shops.
