Timur Novikov

13th Feb - 21st Apr 2013

The most comprehensive exhibition in the UK to date of work by Timur Novikov (1958 – 2002), this will be an important introduction to the artist, preeminent and extremely influential in Russia during the 1980s and 90s. Novikov is best known for his work with fabric whereby he developed a style, at first charming in its formal simplicity with instantly recognisable (almost childlike) motifs, that culminated in manifestations of Neo-Academicism, a movement he led that insisted on a return to classical ideals of beauty.
