Zolotariov Oleksii

Zolotariov Oleksii

Born in Kyiv in 1985, Ukraine.

2003–2010 — The National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, Sculpture faculty.

The artistic strategy of Oleksii Zolotariov refers to the formal search for avant-garde art at the beginning of the 20th century, which was intentionally broken off in the 1920's and 1930's by the Soviet regime. The young sculptor seeks to fill the gaps of the historical artistic flow, inspiring by the works of Archipenko, Malevich and other masters. Oleksii Zolotariov works in various techniques and materials. He is a co-founder of the GAZ Group.
