Molochnikov Mikhail

Born November 19, 1963.

In 1984 he graduated from the Moscow Architectural College.
In 1996 he became a member of the International Union of Artists.
Since 2004 - a member of the German Union of Artists VVK.

The graphic artist Mikhail Molochnikov splits his life between Berlin and Moscow. His works include handmade books, sculptures from cardboard and series of graphics.
In his works the artist starts out from avant-garde ideas, first and foremost Malevich  theory or art, combining them with Eastern Gnosticism and Tibetan mediation practices.

Mikhail Molochnikov comments on his works: „In my creativity I always rely on meditation. It helps me to see the object in its „archaic” form. A world of pure forms where space becomes part of the object and element of creativity.
