ANDREY RUDYEV (b. 1966) says that his first creative practices were directed at realistically portraying objects. He was fanatically devoted to realistic painting. However, as soon as he mastered his artistic skills, his views changed. In his individual preferences, he moved on from the Russian academic artists to the German classic artists of the twentieth century such as Joseph Beuys and Anselm Kiefer, and the contemporaries, Jonathan Meese and Daniel Richter.

Rudyev is a contemporary artist who has experienced stages of painting evolution in his mind and often in his artwork. He cannot and does not want to paint like Renaissance masters. ‘The artist of the present day must train their brain, the art of today happens in minds’, Rudyev says. These words can make for a meaningful commentary not only about his works but also on pieces by other contemporary artists.
