Vladimir Logutov (b. 1980, Russia) lives and works in London. UK.

Logutov is a multimedia artist known primarily for his paintings, sculptures, and video works. He began his career as a video artist, focusing on the aspects of human attention and techniques for manipulating it. Later, he also turned to traditional materials, using them in a conceptualist way to criticize the medium itself, revealing and inverting the structure of its functioning. For example, Logutov explored and implemented the idea of an ‘exhibition inside a painting.’ This concept was realized in a few art projects, the most well-known of which is ‘Next Level.’ Additionally, he creates metal objects dedicated to the ‘end of the industrial age.’ For instance, a real railway rail can serve as material for a minimalist sculpture. He also works with large-scale paintings, often monochrome. In these works, Logutov creates an image that seems abstract at first glance, but intuitively you can see a represented image or figurative association.

Logutov is a winner of the Innovation Prize 2018. Artist of the Year. Winner of the Joseph Brodsky Prize 2018. Fellow of the American Academy in Rome in 2019. Logutov’s work has been shown at major international exhibitions including The Modernikon project at the 54th Venice Biennale; the Fourth Guangzhou Triennial, China; the 4th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art (2014); the exhibitions Lost in Translation and The Way of Enthusiasts at the 55th Venice Biennale; and the 2nd Triennial of Contemporary Art at the Garage Museum, Moscow (2020). Artist’s works are both in private and museum collections, including collections of The State Tretyakov Gallery. Museum of Modern Art, FRAC Bretagne Museum (France) and others.
