Curator Irina Shulzhenko

Young and completely different from each other, auto-didactic artists have never studied painting professionally, but each has its own special background, which partly determines their expressive language. An autodidact artist is often freer in developing his aesthetics than those over whom the school dominates. However, self-taught are more difficult to fit into the context of institutions. To find their own identity, they need to constantly be open to experiment and study the visual context around them.

Jolie Alien is a young model for whom painting is, above all, a way to express and capture their own impressions and thoughts, using collage compositions and complementary colors.

Yuri Samoilov - screenwriter, director. In the works explores the boundaries of the figurative and abstract.

Pavel Solovyov is a top manager from the world of advertising and marketing, exploring the identity of a person in the modern world and creating monochrome works that inherit the search for Paul Klee and Juan Miro.

Solovyev Paul

Paul Solovyev, a multidisciplinary artist, equally comfortable existing both in gallery spaces and in interventions in the urban and natural environment. Paul is interested in the phenomenon of destruction and ideologization of the image in nobrow culture. In his works, subcultural and iconic signs mutate, flowing into each other, dissolving and disappearing, sacred, political and advertising symbols.

Paul Solovyev, a multidisciplinary autodidact artist working in the field of performance, non-performance art, readymade, installations, photography, painting and graphics. Drawing on the influence of his previous professional experience in advertising and fashion, Pavel focuses on the queer aspects of identity that challenge the notions of representation and the eschatological potential of the image. In his projects, Pavel studies the transformation and transgression of the image in the stream of sacred, mystical, political and advertising symbols that fill the mediums of modern mass culture. Pavel's works are in private and corporate collections in the USA, Great Britain, Spain, Germany, France, Japan, the Netherlands, Ukraine and Russia.

Creator of the LOVE clothing brand. As an artist and designer of the brand, Pavel collaborated with such musical groups as Aphex Twin, NAADYA, Grazhdanskaya Oborona, Burzum and others.

Yuri is a graphic artist and painter with an extraordinary background. He first started in the visual arts at the age of 20, then, after studying at the Moscow School of New Cinema (MSNC) to become a screenwriter and director, he returned to painting and drawing.

Jury's work is a methodological look into the nature of painting; in this he continues the line of abstract painters from America and the German neo-expressionists of the 1960-70s (De Kooning, Baselitz and Kiefer were particularly close). Through them, Samoilove also addresses the question of method, which for him lies in the problem of the relationship between figurative and abstract art. The artist approaches this boundary by means of automatic writing and palimpsest of textures.

In creating abstraction, there is a very great risk of entering the figurative precisely by accident, unintentionally. Automatic writing, removes this problem by making the image identical in meaning and importance to the abstraction. The line is erased, and the unambiguously figurative can use that plastic language in which it is not immediately recognized.

The same with palimpsest: Yuri applies and erases layers of paint, overlaps one with the other, scrapes the drawing with a sharp turn of the brush, and uses spray paint along with acrylics from the tube and pastels. The texture of these works gravitates toward sculptural plasticity, hence the pathos of the material. The material and its molding become no less interesting and important than the image itself.

All this creates works in which the viewer can discover the collision of different problems of the visual, each of which is attractive in its own way: from the limits of figurative painting, automatic and deliberate, to the pressurization of texture as a way of overcoming painting itself.
