Vadim Sidur: Hard Creativity

Vadim Sidur: Hard Creativity

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.
