Vladimir Dubossarsky et Alexandre Vinogradov

Born in 1964 - Russian Federation


Vladimir Dubossarsky is a Russian artist born in 1964 in Moscow. Since 1994 he performs in an art duet with Alexander Vinogradov. Both live and work in Moscow, Russia.

In the early part of their career together they adopted the style of socialist realism, an officially sanctioned art practice under the soviet regime. Their early works resembled posters for non-existent thrillers and sleazy porn flicks. They worked with their idea of social order, laborers, collective farmers, etc. and put a modern twist on an outdated practice. Their result was a collection of ideas and themes that would make socialistic fantasies visible to the viewer.

In 2001, Vladimir Dubossarsky and Alexandre Vinogradov made a transition from the socialist fantasy to the ideals of mass media. Total Painting (2001) created a large scale image of mass culture from around the world borrowing ideas from advertising and mainstream media. Our Best World (2003) created a common ground for stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Spider-Man, Barbie, Madonna, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Marilyn Monroe, and even Picasso. The Underwater World (2002) was made for the Russian pavilion for the 50th Venice Biennale. The piece references ideas gathered from pop images such as mail order catalogs, and heroes in contemporary advertising.
