This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Described as "one of the best-known artists living and working in Russia" and "the high priest of contemporary art",  Oleg Kulik does performance art and installations, working out of a studio in a 200-year old wine factory.  

In New York City in the 1900s in the Deitch Projects gallery, he spent two weeks crawling naked on all fours in a cage, wearing only a studded collar.  The 1990s was also the time when his reputation began to grow in Russia, mostly for his own work and exhibitions organized with work of other artists as well that stirred outrage and indignation.  His installation, Piglet, featured a pig being slaughtered, and he asserted that the pig was symbolic of the Russian government.

In 2008, Kulik's wax figure rendering Cosmonaut of Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, was part of a Space-Theme exhibition at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, organized by Independent Curators International.
