illusory security

I portrayed my acquaintance, Vlad, a 19-year-old guy from Tomsk, who at the age of 17 went hitchhiking in Russia. He started creating street exhibitions "through courtyards", which tell the inner cuisine of street artists and helps young artists exhibit for the first time. He is not afraid to go to meet adventures, climb into a protected area to make a tag or emigrate from Russia to Georgia on a bicycle, as if he is wearing the armor of luck.
