ABOUT VLADIMIR ABIKH

The artist works at the intersection of different media and styles: street art, intervention, installation, video, photography. He often involves the viewers into active engagement with the artwork. In his works, the artist speaks on the topic of urbanism, social injustice, man’s place in the information space, and also explores the impact of virtual on reality. The artist’s creative method is based on the reinterpretation of the street art’s heritage, on working with text and language phenomena. Special attention in works is paid to the symbiosis of semantic content and method of submission. The artist analyzes and reveals the inner mechanisms of functioning of socio-cultural phenomena in concise and ironic forms.
