Victor Popov

Germany / Russia

Victor Popov was born in 1952 in the USSR, studied art in Lviv, Novosibirsk and Saint Petersburg. In 1991 he emigrated to Germany.
His individual style contains fantastic-realistic components and elements of caricature. Something painterly is always present in Victor Popov's sculptures. His conception of the object has its roots in the tradition of Suprematism and Constructivism; at the same time, influences of Cubism and Futurism can be detected.
Popov's sculptures suggest dynamism and movement but are at the same time playful and balanced in the formal language with which Popov breaks away from tradition.
The work of Victor Popov is shown internationally at numerous exhibitions.
