Gregory Orekhov

Russian Federation  • 1976


Gregory Orekhov was born in 1976 in Moscow into the family of the outstanding sculptor and academic, Yuri Orekhov. From an early age, Orekhov studied in his father’s studio, mastering various sculpture techniques and materials. He later continued his studies at the Russian Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture.

In 2004, Orekhov founded the Creative Heritage of Academic Yuri Orekhov Museum, where he showcased a collection of the artist's works, tools and photographs from the archives.

In 2012, Orekhov returned to art full-time and began working in the direction of post-minimalism.

He is true to his language: pure form + a metaphorical image. One of his central works, entitled “Agatha”, is named after his daughter, whose birth served as an impetus for the creation of this work, as well as his artistic and life path in general.

Orekhov is an annual participant of the Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair. Moreover, he participated with his project “Salvation” as part of the parallel program of the Venice Biennale 2019. In 2020, Orekhov created the first large-scale modern sculpture in Russia, in honor of Kazimir Malevich, in a park of the same name. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Russia and abroad. Orekhov’s works can be found in the collections of the Russian Museum and the Multimedia Art Museum of Moscow (MAMM).

Since 2023 he lives and works in France.
