About the artist

Born in Barnaul (1988).

He is a graduate of the Rodchenko School of Photography and Multimedia (Sergey Bratkov's studio).

Egor Fedorychev experiments with traditional forms of Art, including painting. He appropriates and transforms non-art materials in his works, balancing between sculpture and collage, painting and object. Fedorychev uses industrial materials – banners from old exhibitions and concerts, wrapping with half-erased names of construction companies, pieces of industrial fabric from building sites – to make political and socio-cultural statements within a certain historical context. Moreover, he turns to traditional techniques, employing "intuitive painting", to offer his own ways of visualising music and poetry.

Egor Fedorychev studied at the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts (GITIS), and perhaps that is why the artist's installations resemble theatre sets. Besides that, Fedorychev works not only with the spatial and visual aspects of an exposition, but also with the acoustics. In 2018, he was a Nominee of the State Prize in Contemporary Art "Innovation-2018", in the category "New Generation".

On the 11th of December 2019, JART Gallery hosted a private view of Egor Fedorychev's new project "The Inevitable Just-Do-It". (The curator of the project was Alexander Burenkov). At the exhibition, Egor Fedorychev and Pyotr Skvortsov (the main hero of the film "The Apprentice" by Kirill Serebrennikov) created a charged underground atmosphere. Pyotr played the drums, Egor – the electric guitar, but the "highlight of the evening" was Pyotr Skvortsov and Alexandra Mikhalkova's little boy who "carried out the soundcheck"

Egor's works are in the collections of the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow (MAMM), the Vladimir Smirnov and Konstantine Sorokin Foundation, the Center for Contemporary Art Winzavod (Moscow), and in private collections.
