Moses Feigin is the last Russian avant-garde artist and member of the "Jack of Diamonds" group. Listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He absorbed many styles and trends in his work - fauvism, cubism, post-impressionism, expressionism, realism.

The characters are moving against the background of a red brick wall used to erect industrial quarters in cities at the beginning of the 20th century. Where are they heading this time? That we do not know. The fate of street clowns is such that they themselves do not know where they will end up the next morning, and whether they will have enough money for food. This is a very distinguishing feature for many creative professions, including painters, whose work depends on successful sales. Charlie's sad look, directed straight at the viewer, confirms this idea. What lies ahead for this strange trio? It's unknown, but the main thing for them is moving forward.
