Abstract Art

February 1, 2021

Kirill Basalaev is a Russian contemporary artist who predominantly creates abstract paintings. He also creates figurative pieces, such as portraits and floral imagery. Relying on the term “ruination” (thinking of the urban environment as the structure that is constantly crumbling), Basalaev focuses on the relationship between a man and the city and their mutual influence. He studied at the Faculty of Arts and Culture at Tomsk State University in 2009, continuing his studies in 2014-2015 at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Moscow. Born in Tomsk, Kirill Basalaev lives and works in Moscow.
