Pavel Brat

Brat creates collages like no other, achieving an illusion of deconstructed depth through clever manipulation of imagery from the worlds of fashion, design and advertising. Brat's canvases respond to the oppressive nature of advertising and material excess in our everyday lives. Brat creates an abstract tonic, referencing Renaissance paintings and tonal configurations that to the naive eye create intense and mesmerizing abstract landscapes and strong colour palletes from glossy magazines.

Pavel Brat organized his first exhibition in February 2007 as part of the art of the "Uncontrolled Overtones" ("NP"). After the breakup of the art group he joined the ranks of the Situationist sect "Stolen Bread" ("KH"), where he participated in artistic activities and performances. In July 2008 he had his first solo exhibition. In August 2010, he moved to St. Petersburg, where he lives and works in the space of the studio "Kitchen" (KUHNYA) by Belinsky, 9. Pavel Brat is a graduate of the educational program PRO ARTE Foundation for Culture and Arts in St. Petersburg. He was nominated for the Sergey Kuryokhin Modern Art Award 2013 in the category "Best Work of Visual Art" and is considered amongst the top young artists in Russia. He has recently participated as part of Manifesta 10 in the host city of St. Petersburg.
