Alexander Dubovik

Alexander Dubovik (born 1931 in Kyiv) is a key representative of a neo-avant-garde tradition whose art reflects the philosophy and art ideas of the whole XX century. He carved the spirit of freedom with his works behind the iron curtain of totalitarian colonial Soviet Russia. As a french researcher and art expert Jean-Claude Marcade say, the art of Dubovik «is a new modernity, heir of a whole series of avant-gardist movements since the start of the 20th century». Thus, the artist of the second half of the 20th century stands on a profound legacy.
Working mostly with traditional mediums like painting and graphic art in each of his works Dubovik explores a complex system of links between science, history and aesthetics. Mainly achieving wide recognition at the end of the 1980s with his avant-garde work, Dubovik has developed a huge system of signs on his paintings that have been shown worldwide until the present. His ideas about technological singularity are highly interesting in connection with his visual art. Last few years he developed a Manifesto and a few philosophical essays about contemporary art, humanism and singularity. His art and he as a person reflect the “universal man” who stands his ground in the past and today. Facing the socialist realism then dominating in the 1950s and 1960s and not brooking any “formalistic” deviation, Dubovik builds, in total creative freedom, a world of unprecedented richness.
