Biography


I AM VERY PROUD OF MY PAST,  BUT MY FUTURE, OR RATHER A DREAM OF IT, IS WHAT GETS ME OUT OF BED BEFORE DAWN AND MAKES ME DO ALL THESE STRANGE AND CONTROVERSIAL THINGS. OF COURSE THERE IS NO FUTURE, AS THE BIBLE SAYS, BUT THERE IS AN ILLUSION THAT MAKES MY ...ENGINE RUN NON STOP. 
THE FUTURE IS THE GREATEST DRUG OF HUMANITY.

1972 Saratov-Russia  


Andrey Bogoslowsky was born in 1966 in Saratov - Russia, the son of a Russian ballerina and politician. In 1978, Andrey left Russia with his mother for Poland.
A year later, at age 13, he completed his first oil painting. He then began private art lessons in classical drawing, oil painting, and composition. By age 16, Andrey had completed over 100 oil paintings as well as more than a dozen wood and clay sculptures.
He exhibited his works in the hallways of his high school and Andrey became a local celebrity. Andrey's first solo show took place at the ballroom of the Russian Embassy in Warsaw in October 1982. Since then, Andrey has donated his paintings to Russian Embassies worldwide in exchange and received scholarships, and grants. In 1984, Andrey was admitted to the Academy of Visual Arts in Warsaw.
In 1985, he received a Russian scholarship to study "classical technologies and techniques" in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. This was followed by a six month scholarship to Budapest and six months in Prague. At that time, Andrey's art was very diverse, consisting of colorful ceramics, oil painting, and traditional graphic techniques. In his oil paintings, Andrey followed the path of painting from nature. His ceramics resembled Mediterranean dollhouse infected by organic elements. His figurative sculptures were strongly influenced by the 20 century French sculptor A. Maillol.

   Andrey's black and white graphics were fantastic expressions of the world from legends and fairy tales; however, they were far from commercial illustrations.
In 1987, Andrey received one more scholarship to study in Madrid. From Madrid Andrey came to New York as a political refuge in August 1988. All these years in New York had transformed Bogoslowsky's art into a meaningful philosophical statement. Andrey's writings have become a "bible" to many young artists, and his works are highly praised by well known and established collectors, critics and artists.

Very often unable to sleep at night, Andrey will begin writing in a stream of consciousness fashion, covering the backs of his canvases and works on paper with philosophy, wisdom, and an appeal to the universe for answers to the essences of our creative existence in this human form... in this lifetime... on this planet.

Bogoslowsky's large works surround us with the energy which vitally surges through him in life and flows freely through his brush. Yet it is through observing his small works we can understand the intimacy and immediacy of his timeless message. It is important to understand that these small works have not been created as an end unto themselves; they are physically part of the process as larger works are developed. They are not studies, but are a response to the challenge of each creative moment. An observation, an emotion, a realization... captured aside and yet parallel to a larger series of work in progress.
