6 Vadim Sidur: Hard Creativity

Vadim Sidur: Hard Creativity

Posted on December 13, 2010 by team

Vadim Sidur was one of the most amazing Russian sculptors. His most famous art cycles were “Coffin-Art” and “Iron Prophets”. His statues are made of industrial debris, rusty pipes, lumps of iron, of wood and stone. And he clapped on these materials hats and gloves. His works are striking, shoking and sometimes quite depressive, but don’t leave you indifferent.

While working on the cycle “Coffin-Art” the artist used as a working material sewer pipes, details of automobile engines and other waste products of “The Second Nature” – human civilization.
