Dobrynya Ivanov

Dobrynya Ivanov

Born in 1987. Lives and works in Kyiv. Studied in Oleksandr Babak's studio.

Works predominantly in the installation genre, the artist is continiously looking for the self-identification paths - artistic and existential. Dobrynya creates an almost sexual opposition of textures and surfaces in his subtle and amazingly personal series "Touch".

His work "Exposable People" reveals author's different side - homo socialis.

"Still Life" is composed of boxes filled with junk - "portraits of generation" supposedly sketched from the actual or imaginary friends and acquaintances, - is Dobrynya's social projection.
