Artem Rezchikov

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Artem Rezchikov

Russian Federation

Artem Rezchikov is a contemporary visual artist, born in Abakan (Russia, Siberia). Currently lives and works in Moscow.

His love to create and some 1-st place victories at the city-level drawing contents in his teens pointed out that he came to this world with an innate talent to “paint”. This gift was so obvious to the others and daunting due to the notorious artist’s fate to his parents, that after consultations with psychologists Artem was introduced to architecture.

He studied at the Florentine Academy of Art and the State Academy Moscow Architectural Institute (MArchI). Graduated from the National Research Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (Architecture & Engineering Dept). However, he could not escape his fate and never became an architect due to even minimum-required compliance (from a security point of view) in architecture. The world of Art for its absence of any framework has consumed him entirely.

Artem is a member of the Creative Union of Professional Artists of Russia. His works were shown in a number of exhibitions in Russia, including «The Artist’s World» (TSKS Vostok), «Spring charm» (Moscow City Duma), «Great space of being» (the State Central Museum of Contemporary Russian History), «Son on Summer night» (the Cultural Center of the Embassy of Armenia).

In 2018 and 2019 he was awarded first prizes for such Ukraine-based international competitions as “His Majesty Landscape 2018” and “Individual Portrait Contest”.

Artem’s works are in private collections in Italy, Australia, Canada, Ukraine and Russia.
