Artemiev plays all kind of Sicilians, very opposite to his style with white pieces. Praggnanadhaa plays for healthy position and prefers pieces exchanges in order to secure positive result.

Unlike many other Sicilian lines, black leaves an open diagonal for the dark-squared bishop to develop on. Black also places the queen on the semi-open c-file.
The queen is also a good guardian of the e5-square in the Taimanov Sicilian, preventing an early e4-e5 by white in some cases!
