Artjom Chepovetskyy (born 1984) studied philosophy at the Johannes Gutenberg University and Fine Arts at the Kunsthochschule Mainz from 2007 to 2016, among others Prof. Klaus Vogelsang, Prof. Andrea Büttner and Prof. Anne Berning. His works have been shown in numerous exhibitions in the Rhine-Main area, in Leipzig, Bonn, Gera and Osnabrück as well as in Enschede (NL) and are part of private and public collections. In 2018 his works were part of the Landeskunstschau Rheinland-Pfalz FLUX4ART and Mainzer Art Prize.
Patterns and forms of objects of urban space are the sources of inspiration in the work of Artem Chepovetskyy. A cross-media exploration of the issues of painting, the experimental exploration of the material and the exploration of the limits of the medium fuel his artistic process. The questions of depth and transparency are central starting points of his artistic exploration, which are achieved through a playful approach. In Chepovetskyy‘s work, the image becomes an object which, in an experimental transfer of the color form of language from the field of two dimensional painting, gradually merges into a vast extension of the questions of painting, taking on a new form of expression.
