Vadim Komissarov - Dive into the Unknown, 2020 @ POLYOT ART AGENCY
"The main issue of interest for me as an artist is creation of a new mythology of modern life"
The plots of the artist’s works are mainly based on human figures. These are often athletic girls placed in a non-standard, conditional environment. The main technique of the works is acrylic painting on canvas. This technique is attractive for the artist with its high drying speed of the layers: "I paint in thin multi-layered layers and I love when the canvas shines through the paint."
In his mosaic pieces Vadim Komissarov uses unique technique with long strips, mainly of stained glass: "Lately I have been interested in the glitch effect." Many works in painting and mosaic are made in this visual form. Glitch subconsciously forces the viewer to doubt the reality of the modern computer era image."
The artist was born in Minsk on the 23 of May, 1982.
He works in various easel and monumental painting techniques and also creates art objects.
Since 2003, he has been living and working in St. Petersburg.
