Aljoscha

Born in 1974 in Glukhov, Ukraine, lives and works in Düsseldorf (since 2003)

bioism or biofuturism represents my attempt to create
new living forms and a new aesthetics of future organic life.
I regard each of my works as a living being.

The most important topic in Aljoscha’s work is interaction and friction of culture and nature. On first sight his objects seem to be living, like beings or plants overgrowing reality.

Like many living creatures the delicate, filigree works have got their (wire-) skeleton. Hereon the Ukrainian artist piles up viscous silicone paint-dots in an unbelievably slow process, makes the objects grow and develop, and creates characters of immense vitality.

Originally his work derives from painting, from a pictorial process. As a base for his working with color he develops a complex form, each object gets specific, individual. The artist calls it ‘the invention of form as creature’. Some of his objects mature to sculptural characters up to 2,5 m of height. Like in the present edition, the artist sometimes plates or galvanizes the acrylic objects with bronze to precious gems.
