Stanislav Azarov's artworks are brought into being by his peculiar Imagination and Fantasy, his allusions span from the early Middle Ages to Surrealism and Dadaism. His artworks contain feautures of a new post-industrial culture and show deep knowledge of traditional craft.
Lyubov Yakhontova, art critic
Stanislav Azarov (1977) is a contemporary graphic artist and painter who lives and works in Volgograd, Russia. He earned a Diploma in Printed Graphics from Volgograd State Pedagogical University (1999).
Since 2000 he has been working as an independent artist, engaged in various printing and painting techniques, art-performances, decorating the interiors of public spaces and teaching.
Azarov’s artwork has been shown in exhibitions in Russia, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Finland and Great Britain. His artworks are in the collections of the Museum du Petit Format in Belgium, in the ADOGI Mini-Print Cadaques Gallery (Spain), in the Russian State Pushkin Museum, as well as in private collections in Germany, Great Britain, Spain, USA and Russia.
Graphic works by Stanislav Azarov are presented in a number of Russian and foreign galleries under a false name. Their authorship is attributed to Foma Jaremtschuk (or Foma Yaremchuk), and the artworks date back to 40-50 years of the XX century. The author (or authors) of this hoax are still unknown. Stanislav Azarov's artworks were exhibited and sold without his knowledge. This art hoax was investigated in detail by Mikhail Yashnov and Yulia Vishnevetskaya.
An additional mythological dimension has arisen thanks to a series of stories by Solomon Kornzerstern (aka Mitya Zimin) about "the famous Abkhaz artist Stasyan Azaria" which have only an indirect relationship to the real Stanislav Azarov.
