Vasil Artamonov

Artamonov is part of an artistic duo which he forms together with the three years' younger Alexej Klyuykov. Their work is so interconnected that they were both given the 2010 Jindřich Chalupecký Award, the only duo in the history of the award. Both the artists come from Russia and although they have lived in the Czech Republic since their youth, they often return, besides other art history legacies, to the Russian avant-garde in their works. They consider important the reinterpretation of the established values and their update within contemporary society, which the artists often interpret relatively sceptically.
