Vladimir Grig inherited his illustrational skillset from traditional soviet practices, spending numerous years perfecting his image of artistic creation. The majority of his works contain a slight twist on graphical design, which includes images from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Using technological advancements as well as historical artistic perspectives, Grig connects the everyday lives of our past, our present, and our future. Drawing inspiration from within, dreams, memories, and fantasies about an idealistic and romantic past are a driving force behind his artworks. Grig’s allusions that life, time, and beings in existence are a cyclical phenomenon suggest a unique perspective. At the same time his art contains mysticism, which is characteristic of early Russian literature from the beginning of the 20th century.


His early artistic endeavors began in the late ‘80s when Grig worked as a book illustrator with several known publishing houses. In 1995, he received a grant from the Berlin Academy of Art, recognizing his numerous contributions to the fine art culture. Grigs’ projects have been nominated for prestigious honors such as the Kandinsky Award and the Kurehin Award. His development of the entity called “Dimensionen” was displayed at the 55th Annual Biennale in Venice. Often collaborating with other artists, his works have been featured in some of the most prominent galleries in Russia, Germany and Austria, including the Russian Museum and Soil Science Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as Krasnodar Kovalenko Art Gallery.
