Fedor Krushelnitsky

Fedor Krushelnitsky is often called a sculptor-philosopher: his monumental sculptures are concise and reflect upon the industrial-socialist epos. Fedor's artworks are a so-called monument to a bygone era of the Soviet Union: to the heroic pilots, sailors' wives, students of workers' courses and athletes. Graphic works of Krushelnitsky contain the same characters, in the form of humorous sketches, counterbalancing  solid bronze.

Krushelnitsky works in the techniques of bronze casting, ceramics. Like any other great artist, he came up with his own system of visual signs, his own expressive language. The result of that is his bright, always recognizable style.

Other works of the artist also have narrative nature - for example, St. Andrew the First-Called and Dr. Sigmund carry the viewer away into a maze of meanings, just by holding a number of symbolic objects in their hands.
