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