Alexandr Melamid – Александр Меламид
Alexander Melamid (1945). Conceptualist and performance artist.
Melamid was born into a Jewish family of Daniel Melamid [ru], Soviet historian, in Moscow and attended the Stroganov Art Institute, where he collaborated with Vitaly Komar in the Russian SOTS ART movement (a parallel to the Western Pop Art movement). Known as a cynical Social Realist, Melamid began collaborating with Komar in the late 1960s; the two emigrated together to New York City from the Soviet Union in 1977. In 2003, the two artists decided to go their separate ways. Around this time, Melamid’s first-born son, Dan, introduced him to the world of hip-hop, which included his clients and close friends Whoo Kid and 50 Cent. Melamid was intrigued by hip-hop society because of its rich history and world appeal, and began to paint the hip-hop portraits that have become his first solo exhibition since splitting with Komar, on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.[c
Alexander is currently working in Chelsea, NYC at his Art Healing Ministry. Recent new series of works include “Heaven and Hell” and “The Art of Plumbing.”[
Vitalij Komar – Виталий Комар
Vitalij Komar (Moscow, 1943). In 1967 he graduated from the Stroganov School of Art and Design.
Shortly thereafter, he began working more and more closely with his friend and colleague Melamid: the artistic career of the two will never separate, they will sign all their works together.
From the end of the sixties and from the beginning of the following decade, the author (together with his colleague) became the founders and promoters of the artistic genre of Sots-art.
In 1973, he was expelled as was also the case for Melamid, from the youth section of the Union of Soviet Artists. In the following year, 1974, he was arrested, always together with Melamid, during an exhibition in a Moscow apartment, and later, many of his works were destroyed in the famous and tragic exhibition of Bulldozers.
Since 1978, he lives in New York.
