Semyon Faibisovich

Born in 1949 in Moscow. Studied at the Krasnaya Presnya Art School. Graduated from the Moscow Institute of Architecture in 1972, worked as an architect. Since the end of the 1970s was interested in paintings and graphics. Since 1976 he started to display his works at the Moscow City Exhibition Center of Graphic Artists on Malaya Gruzinskaya, a non-official site for Moscow non-conformists. In 1985 his art was discovered by New York art-dealers, and since 1987 Faibisovich displayed his works in the USA, Europe, and Russia. Faibisovich keeps reinventing the visual language, his creative works are on the verge of paintings and photographs. It is important for the artist to feel the psychology of his time and be able to capture it. He has a special relationship with the place, the time he works in, this explains why his art is trendy. Faibisovich’s works were listed as the most expensive contemporary artworks at prestigious auctions many times. The works of Faibisovich are on display at the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Multimedia Art Museum (Moscow), Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (Birmingham, Great Britain), Ludwig Múzeum – Kortárs Művészeti Múzeum (Budapest, Hungary), Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, USA), Kunsthalle in Emden (Emden, Germany), as well as in other museums of Great Britain, Germany, USA, and other countries.
