Vova Keno is an artist from Ukraine who is currently based in Lviv. He came up with the idea of Project Serendipity. The idea is to collect his works and present them in books. There are three categories: sketches, graffiti pieces, and paintings. The task was to create a system that would be flexible and adjustable next volumes. Shown here is the first volume of sketches, and the main idea was to bring to users the feeling of Keno’s original sketchbook. So we kept the same paper color, texture, and composition as in the original sketches. Every item is hand-signed by the author to give a personal touch.
In the words of Keno:
The project called ‘Serendipity’ is a reflection of different stages of my artistic journey, it’s a search for newness and transformation of existing, redefining forms and giving a new meaning to the old things. The term ‘serendipity’ means not only the paths themselves. It is fundamental in the creation process. I would describe it as the ability to draw important conclusions from random observations, to find what you haven’t been looking for. The main principle of serendipity is to be in the right place at the right time because significant changes always happen when you expect them least, but mentally you are ready for them.
