Arman Hostikyan is an iron artist living in Sochi, Russia.
He makes beauty out of burning iron.
We tried to make something nearly as beautiful as his artworks.
Because we feel that if something can be done with big D, it SHOULD be done with big D.
We wanted to make it easy to navigate with mouse & keyboard, rich with HTML5 and slightly demonic.
Arman wanted black backgrounds and huge hi-res artwork photos.
The site uses different HTML5 animation effects on the main page (6 slides) - starting with parallax at Winter Queen Mask (1st slide). Folio uses sliding principle too, plus Fancybox. You can navigate through the works with vertical scrolling and move to next folder with horizontal scrolling. There's timer at Process page showing approximate completion times. 2 slides - Cogito Ergo Sum + 7 Wonders - use usual and unusual zooming, check them out. Preloader uses 4 artwork previews representing 4 elements of nature.
Contorra and its skillful Jedis:
- Dmitry Melnik, developer
- Aleksandr Ognev, developer
- Yaroslav Galinsky, front-end
- Nina Levkovskaya, designer
