Born in 1974, Alexey Morozov graduated from the Moscow State Academic Surikov Art Institute (workshop ofÂ Lev Kerbel). InÂ 1999 heÂ went toÂ Provence toÂ study classical sculpture and French terracotta. AÂ year later, Alexey started his collaboration with the artist Timur Novikov, the founder inÂ St. Petersburg ofÂ the New Academy ofÂ Fine Art. InÂ 2003 Morozov had two solo exhibitions inÂ St. Petersburg. InÂ Moscow the artistâ€™s work has been shown atÂ aÂ number ofÂ group exhibitions, and heÂ isÂ represented byÂ Triumph Gallery. Today, the artist lives and works inÂ Moscow and Bologna.
Morozov believes that European civilization must more often refer toÂ the past, and revisit its positions towards allegory, myth and historical scenes inÂ order toÂ discover aÂ new meaning. The art ofÂ Alexey Morozov proves that classical forms have not died, and that traditions and innovations may well coexist.
