Victor Kazarin is the founder of Russian post-suprematism.
THe artist was born in 1948 in Moscow. Graduated from the Arts department of the Institute for Pedagogics, Victor Kazarin has been a member of the Moscow Union of graphic artists since 1976, and a constant contributor to the famous NON-CONFORLISTS art expositions on Malaya Gruzinskaya Street in Moscow.
In 1991, a huge retrospective exposition of Mr. Kazarin’s works opened in Moscow Manezh (the mane art stage for contemporary art in Moscow), featuring more than 600 of his canvases.
Since then, he is referred to as ‘the father of Russian neoexpressionism ’, which is certainly a new and fresh trend in the fine arts.
In 2003, enriched by art language of abstractionism, cubism, surrealism and post-impressionism, Victor Kazarin founded the new painting style – Russian post-suprematism. Post-suprematism has breathed a new life into the spirit of all avant-garde trends, and even now stimulates their continued development.
When asked about his art, Victor Kazarin says: “painting …must be as easy and natural as breathing, so that the art might stream out of your bosom”. This freedom is what crowns his creative career of more than 20 years.
Today, thousands of canvases by Victor Kazarin grace the exhibitions and private collections in more than 40 countries of the world.
