Valeri Vinogradov (1952) has studied in Moscow State Academic Art School 1905 and in former Estonian State Art Institute (now Estonian Academy of Arts). Vinogradov has participated in exhibitions since 1984 – besides holding numerous personal exhibitions, the artist has taken part in more than three hundred group exhibitions both in Estonia and abroad. Vinogradov’s artwork has been acknowledged with Konrad Mägi Award (1992) and Kristan Raud Art Award (2010).
Valeri Vinogradov’s artwork can be characterized by the balanced combination of aesthetics and intricacy. Art historian Ants Juske has interpreted Valeri Vinogradov’s professional genesis as follows: „In the spirit of strict Russian realism, Vinogradov acquired a strong basis for academic painting in the Moscow art school. His painting style changed considerably in more liberal conditions in Estonia where he gradually reached pure abstractionism.“ As the result of his strong basic education in painting and refined perception of the world, Vinogradov has gained recognition with his conceptual works of painting and sociocritical collages since 1990s.
Exhibitions in Hobusepea gallery are supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Estonian Ministry of Culture and Liviko Ltd.
