Yod (1984-), an artist engaged in contemporary painting. His work captures aggregated images of modern citizens residing in a new environment: a fusion of digital reality, hyper-information, capitalist economy, liberal philosophy, and shows some attributes of digital art.

Raised in Leningrad and trained at the St. Petersburg School of Decorative Arts in a constructivist Russian painting style, inspired by contemporary art, Yod moved to France in 2007 graduating from the Poitiers Art School in 2010 with a degree in Emerging Practices to become a part of the French contemporary art scene, regularly exhibiting worldwide while simultaneously maintaining strong ties to the Russian cultural landscape.

Throughout the 2010s Yod presented paintings in Moscow Center of Modern Art exhibitions series “Rectitude”. The exhibition curated by Vladimir Potapov demonstrated the most relevant contemporary painting practices as part of the international art scene. Since 2016, Yod has been actively working on his most important project — “Me. Human."

Working under a pseudonym to maintain anonymity, images of the artist are incognito.

About Yod


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I am obsessed by human and society


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

My medium is painting, however, it relies on digital technologies such as 3d sculpting and panoramic 360 degrees photography. I use them to prepare a sketch, otherwise, I draw manually. These processes are not hierarchically linked, each tool plays a significant role. The digital technologies permit to calculate huge data —not accessible for a man—which is indispensable to create the figure's appearance typical for my work. Paints and manual labor give a physical dimension. The whole process can be seen as a collaboration between human and artificial intelligence where everyone shares the best of himself.
