Petro Wodkins is a Russian artist, dedicated to exploring modern art. As he says, his goal is to find the very core of art. He is known worldwide for a series of art happenings, while his name is a pseudonym that derives from the Russian artist Kuzma-Petrov-Vodkin.

Petro Wodkins works within the borderlands and intersections.

His scope includes: Performance art, New media art, Street art, Sculpture, Photography, Video, Design, Music, Satire and Social commentary. Some of his popular themes are perception of beauty, exploring power, and media. SOP series is his first attempt to develop the concept of usefull art. A significant and recurring aspect of Petro Wodkins art is that it’s using communicational platforms not only as an amplifier, but also as the stage where he presents his art, a broadcaster for his art.

The Sound of Power (SOP) series is a tribute to the porcelain figurines and the busts our grandparents loved to collect. Glossy white men and flawlessly carved maidens reminded us of something bigger, than our ordinary lives and inspired to greatness.

The Sound of Power is a contemporary reincarnation of these classical objects combining striking visual and audio qualities. SOP is a completely new genre of both busts and speakers. The series will feature powerful people who, in their own way, played the world like instruments and made countries and continents alike march to the beat of their metaphorical drums.

Created in Russia and handcrafted in Sweden these bust speakers are true pieces of useful art and collector’s item. Manufacturing SOP bust speakers is a slow and demanding process.  Each piece is individually casted and polished to perfection. When the driver is installed each SOP undergoes a careful inspection and testing before numbered and signed.  Even the amplifier which serves as the SOP stand is handcrafted. The level of craftsmanship in SOP production is as high as it's made for art exhibition.

The SOP Bust speaker is made of durable and marble like composite material. Equipped with a full range 4" driver and built in base reflex. The SOP bust speaker offers distinct performance and sound clarity. The wooden SOP stand also serves as a bluetooth 20W amplifier. Gold like connectors and textile audio cords make SOP experience pleasant both visually and acoustically.

Sound of Power: St Vladimir bust speaker is made in a limited edition of 100. The price of SOP is €1.111.
