Vyacheslav Akhunov

° 1948

Lives in Tashkent (UZ), born in Osh (KG).

The oeuvre of artist, writer and philosopher Vyacheslav Akhunov comprises abstract paintings, installation, performance and video art, as well as numerous essays and novels. Born into a Russian-Uzbek family, these multi-cultural circumstances determine his artistic production, in which he pursues a quest for the encounter of Asian mentality and European stylistics. Akhunov’s aesthetics are sometimes described as surrealistic, but on the other hand, he is considered the first conceptual artist in Uzbekistan’s underground movement between the 1970s and 1990s.
