Rinat Voligamsi

Rinat Voligamsi was born in 1968 in Yermolaevo, a small village in the Kuyurgazinskiy District in the southern Urals of Russia. Interested in art and painting from a young age, Voligamsi entered the Ufa State Technological University in the Architecture Department in 1984 after years of self-tutelage. In 1988 due to conscription, he was recruited into the Russian army, interrupting his studies. He graduated the following year, in 1989, and began exhibiting. In 1994 he was awarded the State Prize of Russia, for Excellence in the Arts. He began to gain international attention in 2006 with his provocative Unofficial Album, which recounts a parallel and fictitious biography of Vladimir Lenin and his twin brother Sergei.

Voligamsi's work can be found in many important public and private collections including: The Omsk M. A. Vrubel Museum of Fine Arts, Omsk, Russia; The M. B. Nesterov Republican Art Museum, Bashkortostan Republic, Russia; Krasnoyarsk Cultural-Historical Museum Complex, Krasnoyarsk, Russia; Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Moscow; Erarta, Museum and Galleries of Contemporary Art, St. Petersburg.
