Erik Bulatov

Russian-born Bulatov has been active since the 1960s, as a prominent figure in the Moscow Conceptualist movement, and a pioneer of Sots-Art (the Eastern Bloc’s answer to Pop Art). His bold canvases often incorporate text or slogans into the image, and are treated with irony and humour. Since the fall of the Soviet Union his works have gained international acclaim, and he is regarded as one of the most important Russian artists of the late-20th century.
