ALEXEY MARTINS

Alexey Martins (b. 1989, Krasnoyarsk in 1989) is a visual artist based in Moscow. In his practice, Martins works with various media, revealing the dynamic tension between civilisation and nature. His body of work amalgamates into a single social and aesthetic project—meditation on environmental cataclysms, the ambivalent status of a human being in the system of organic life, regional identity, and the unifying potential of art.
