THE MOLECULAR BEAR
MoBears are molecules of Teddybearium, a happy memory from my childhood. They are my good luck charms, bringing the sincere, unconventional joy of existence that fills a child's heart back into my adult life. MoBears are simple but contain within their molecular structure
the sophistication of all natural designs. My dream is to create happy, shiny, large-scale outdoor MoBears as public art objects.
Two MoBears, Mishka and Dragon, are now on a display at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) greeting visitors to Vancouver. I remember arriving here myself seven years ago as a new immigrant with a child. We knew nobody in both Americas. Moving here from Russia was like moving to another planet. Everything felt so alien and detached. Now with my bears at YVR I feel completely accepted by my new motherland. And I hope that their bright and happy skins will make newcomers feel a bit more welcomed!
