ABOUT THE ARTIST

The Russian-born master student of Prof Markus Lüpertz, Igor Oleinikov, started his artistic carrier in Moscow and later continued his journey at the Art Academies of Karlsruhe and Düsseldorf. He currently resides and works in Berlin. The Art Galerie 7 has followed and displayed his work in varying solo- exhibitions. We initially displayed the mysterious and imaginative landscapes of his early works and then moved on to his later figurative “Room”. The poetic landscapes of his early style are not only characterised by a misty appearance and an almost melancholic atmosphere, but simultaneously make use of intense colours. Oleinikov current works lead the spectator into a mysterious forests again- a place where the artist seems to experience loneliness and retreat. Far- off from civilisation, he combines the human being with nature and wildlife by using sophisticated pencil strokes and active colour on large canvases. The work of Igor Oleinikov is generally defined by a continuous artistic development that always finds new inspirations.
