Masha Bogoraz

Masha Bogoraz was born in Rostov-on-Don. In 2000 she graduated from Rostov University of Arts named after Grekov.

In 2010 she created the “Laundry” art group.
The art world of Masha resembles some reality, inhabited by amazing creatures – foxes, cats, dogs and crows with eyes, habits and souls of human beings. While peering at these puppets-sculptures, you feel that they are observing you. A total dream experience. But who is dreaming: we or they?

Alexander  Selivanov

Alexander  Selivanov (Chinese) was born in Rostov-on-Don on July 2, 1978.

Style – Geometric Abstraction, Proto-Minimalism

Since the mid-90’s Alexander has been making experimental music, which serves as a basis for his transition to the sphere of abstract painting. His minimalist works are influenced by the American schools and trends (post-painterly abstraction, color field painting, hard-edge painting).

The works by Alexander are very concentrated and meditative. Each of them vividly illustrates how chaos of our visual environment is turning into a harmonious and balanced space.

Oleg Ustinov

Oleg Ustinov was born in 1984 in Rostov-on-Don.
From 2004 to 2009 he studied at South-Russian Institute for Humanities, Department of Advertising.
Since 2011 Oleg has been a student of the Sergey Bratkov group, Rodchenko School of Photography and Multimedia, Moscow.

He is a member of the “Zhaba i Chort” (“The Toad and the Deuce”) art group.

Oleg has created a new trend in painting “Kick-Art” that develops a theme of aggression, saturating life of a modern megalopolis. Oleg has developed New York abstract expressionism of the 40s-50s and reproduced it in Russia.

“In a modern megalopolis the atmosphere is highly flammable. I’ve been thinking a lot how to bring action painting to the boiling point. The solution was suggested by life itself. I combine action-painting and a Russian aggression: I paint on canvas, hitting it with my fists.  I am actually transforming a chav into an artist.”
