Kirill Makarov b. 1988

I would like to convey a sense of diffuse attention in the cosmic concern for time and explore the reconstruction of experience in the object of digital morphogenesis.


Inspired by everyday eventless life, Kirill Makarov creates works that challenge the canons of painting. By using a special technique that resembles the complex algorithms required to make a video game, Makarov explores people’s relationship to their images and the machines producing these images.


Makarov graduated from the A.A. Stieglitz State University of Arts & Industry in St Petersburg. In 2013-2015 he was a resident of the Abbaye de La Prée, France.
