The ZIP group artistic practice resonates with the attempt at strengthening the cross-species equality. Thus animal world is frequently depicted in their projects. By making crabs, dolphins, tardigrades and jaguars the main characters of their paintings, the artists set connection with the non-human. The group living and working in Krasnodar pay special attention to the local context, especially the Southern Russian flora and fauna. The territory of the Caucasus was once inhabited by the Turanian tigers. The last representatives of this species became extinct in the middle of the 20th century.
