Biography

ANDREI ANDREEV
St.Petersburg, Moscow

Andrei graduated from the Saint Petersburg State Academic Art Lyceum. The artist also studied in the faculty of Graphic Arts from 2007 to 2013 at the Saint Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting and Architecture. In 2013, Andrei graduated with recognition from the St Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting and Architecture. In 2009, he studied book graphics at the painters studio under the guidance of an academician from the Russian Academy of Arts, Professor Andrei Pakhomov. Since 2013, Andrei has been a member of the creative workshop of the Russian Academy of Arts under the guidance of the academician Andrei Pakhomov. In 2014, Andrei became a teacher of drawing for the senior courses of the Russian Academy of Arts named after I. E. Repin. Andrei Andreev is the winner of various national and international competitions such as Lexus New Art (Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art), “Reviving the Classics” (Academy of Arts), “Vices” (Avrora Fashion Week in Manege), participant of Martini Art Weekend (“Red October”, Moscow), Student Art Fair (Artplay, Moscow) and ArtPark (design factory “Flacon”, Moscow). Andrei Andreev has been a part of various exhibitions in the Union of Artists, the Art Academy, private galleries of Saint Petersburg and Moscow.   Andrei Andreev's artwork balances between abstraction and figurativity. The artist isolates the figure without forcing it to be immobile, and gives shape to a special kind of movement or the willingness to do it. This inward movement is directed to make the figure learn its own place in the world. The figurative nature of the painting suggests the connection between the elements, which inevitably leads to an illustrative narrative. One can avoid it via abstraction and the aesthetic autonomy of the work, but also via the insulation of the figure. A visual text in any case is broken down, even if we guess through its fragments the traces of the alphabet which constitute reality. Isolation allows us to avoid storytelling. It is necessary because of Andreev’s pictures that are saturated with cultural allusions.
