Max Laniado has the pleasure to present the new collection of masterpieces by Anatoly Burykin in his Chelsea gallery, on view from November 5 through November 29, 2015.

Anatoly Burykin was born in 1950 in Moscow, Russia. He studied at Moscow’s Architecture Institute where he later on taught academic drawing. During his career in the USSR, Burykin created film posters, and book and magazine illustrations that caught great attention and fame. The illustrations of his last children’s book were chosen for the 19th edition of the International Exhibition of Children’s Book Illustration in Sarmede, Italy.

In the USSR, Burykin was exposed to the creative ethos of Kandinsky, Malevich, and Rodjenko, which introduced him to techniques and vision of Abstract art. Associating realistic objects with static moments, he turned toward abstract techniques for its freedom of expression and ability to depict infinite moments. In his paintings, one can find reoccuring forces derived from the artist’s visual memory of his architectural training and travels to the Siberian wilderness.

In his latest collection, Burykin observes the interplay of chaotic backgrounds and sharp-edged geometric objects on a flat canvas. He embraces the juxtaposition of chaos and order, as well as light and darkness, which for him, reflects the shift between the initial stages of fluctuation to the creation of prime elements, that are, the base for the birth of our universe.
Anatoly Burykin has participated in numerous international and solo exhibitions in Moscow, Paris, and Europe. In 2008, he was discovered by Max Laniado who dedicated him seven solo exhibitions in Paris. Today, his paintings are part of many prominent private and public collections around the world.
