Oleksandr Balbyshev

Oleksandr Balbyshev was born in 1985 in Ukraine, one of the biggest Soviet Republics. After graduating from The Prydniprovska State Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture in 2012, he worked in the sphere of architecture and design. But two years later, in connection with the revolutionary events in Ukraine, a serious financial crisis began. In 2016 Oleksandr lost his job. He decided to change activities and become an artist. Oleksandr currently lives and works in Dnipro, Ukraine.
The most important theme in Oleksandr’s art is male sensuality. Artist wants the viewer to see the realm of ideas in faces and bodies, not only an image of a human. They show us an image of ourselves and hint that there is more to us than we know.
Another important part of Oleksandr’s art is modifying old Soviet-era portraits of Lenin. Artist finds original portraits and sculptures of Lenin made in the Soviet era on flea markets and the Internet. He paints on top of old portraits of Lenin fragments from famous paintings or drip paint on them, cut the canvases into pieces and chaotically glue them, and paints them with children; he paints the sculptures in funny colors and glues them with various objects. As a result of this artistic gesture, the artist erases the image's propaganda and ideological meanings. The artwork acquires new meanings, an antinomical combination of play and seriousness, prompting the viewer to go beyond the accepted paradigm.
