Alexey Azarov

Alexey Azarov was born in 1975 in a village near Arkhangelsk. Despite the fact that the artist’s professional activity is concentrated in the graphic design (among his works are computer animation and design of news and analytical TV programs), since the early 2000s, he has been engaged in painting. Now artworks with the author’s seal AZART are parts of many private and museum collections. In 2020, Azarov successfully presented the “Policy of Truth” series at the Vladey auction.

The artist creates satirical images that reflect the absurdity of everyday life, social and political events. He often uses personal memories, pop culture images to create perfect imaginary worlds. In the new series “Wake Up”, Azarov talks about a fictional alternate reality in which Vladimir Lenin exists both as a real and fictional character.
The artist currently lives and works in Moscow.
