The "Artist" nickname actually comes from earlier in the season in the first shows of Au dessus de la Mêlée. I thought it was a good analogy for him, he really does have an "artistic" style. God bless those Russians and their techniques. Its really a shame Fedorov and Kovalev are probably the last of the old generation, the new one may have more intensity but they sure as hell dont look as good. Everything seems effortless and smooth for them.
