Studio 30

STUDIO 30

STUDIO 30 is Lilia Balasanova and Sergey Kolevatykh. They graduated from the Art Department of the Moscow Textile Academy and trained in the Netherlands. Despite the common biography and many years of experience working in the same studio, each of the artists retains not only their own style, but also the features of their plastic vision. According to the artists themselves, their close collaboration further reveals the individuality of each of them.

Both artists have always been interested in finding their own context. When in 2001 STUDIO 30 appeared first as an idea, and then grew into an author’s project, Lilia Balasanova and Sergey Kolevatykh managed to build their creative ways in a single line. Since that time, many works have been created together. According to critics, the unique combination of common interests and mutu-al differences gives the projects a special depth and multidimensionality. The STUDIO 30 focuses on the topics that cover a wide variety of phenomena of modern urban civilization. According to Lilia Balasanova and Sergey Kolevatykh, the ability to follow time and change with it is, today, one of the most important qualities of a contemporary artist. In «Changing Dimensions» series, STUDIO 30 explores a rapidly changing new reality that reveals another information dimension. The sense of spatial and temporal transformation is becoming a de-fining element of reality perception today. Whatever influences the way of thinking of a modern person, for example, new technologies, changes in the surrounding space, the search for identity, or such an unknown area as virtual reali-ty, everything can become the theme of the next project of STUDIO 30. Artists’ works were purchased not only by private collections, but also by Russian state museum and exhibition funds, as well as collections of such world-famous corporations as Deloitte, John Deere, Hyatt Development, Johnson & Johnson, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and others. The artists’ works are presented in the interiors of many leading Russian and foreign companies, including SITRONICS, Praedium, AG Capital, Central Properties, and Sheremetyevo international airport. The artists live and work in Moscow.
