Biography

Statement

Sometimes I don’t know what my paintings are about when I begin them. Exploration of the formal elements of a composition fascinate me and are often what reveals to me the conceptual impulse. Having lived through many contrasting formative experiences, I am, as if drawn by gravity, attracted to contrast in my paintings, to things that don’t “work” combined together in an image. I let my subconscious guide me towards a visual solution, using the skills I have acquired through the years.

Since childhood, my life was often nomadic and it had a fair share of contrast in it. When I was seven years old I ended up in a war zone which my family and I managed to escape. I grew up with my aunts and an uncle, but without my parents for most of my teens. After living in Russia for eighteen years I moved to the US and have been here ever since. What I paint today comes from my thoughts about my family's dynamics and these major, numerous relocations. I am aware of the contrast between being with one half of a family and then the other, and the contrast between life in a war zone and the total relief of life on the other side of the world.

My early career efforts were primarily objective observations of the world through still life and plein air painting. I am moving towards a more symbolic visual practice, but still using the vocabulary of Realism. 

 

About

Born in Vladikavkaz, the territory where Southern Russia meets Chechnya in 1983, Timur lived with his family until moving from the region during the conflict of 1991. After moving to St. Petersburg Timur began attending the St. Petersburg Iagonson Fine Art School at the age of twelve, where many of the professors studied at the Repin Academy of Fine Arts. 

After graduation in 2002, Timur immigrated to Chattanooga Tennessee. 

Timur attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga studying in the Fine Arts program. In 2005 to further his education he moved to Florence Italy to study at the Florence Academy of Art and Charles Cicel Studios of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture.

Today, Timur, splits his time between the US and Europe.
