Erik Boulatov

Erik Boulatov was born in Sverdlovsk, Urals, in 1933.

Erik Boulatov is one of the key names of the Muscovite conceptualism and of the Socialist art. He remains true to traditional painting, thanks to his perfect control of pictural technique.

Erik Boulatov developed a singuliar practice, combining pictures, language, the URSS' inconography and images borrowed to history of art, cinema and publicity, defining a singuliar visual aesthetic.
