Alexey Martins

Born in Krasnoyarsk (Siberia) in 1989. Based in London. Graduated from the Faculty of Painting of the Krasnoyarsk Art School and the Free Workshops Contemporary Art School of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art.


The climate is changing along with political and economic order. It leads to art change too. An interest in rapid changing world due to the ecological crises is a cornerstone of my art practice. All art in history has been a product of its time and has reacted to historical events, whether intentionally or inadvertently. By analyzing the interplay of cultural and socio-economic processes, one can understand how the new environmental art will look like. After all, art is a living language capable of responding to constantly evolving realities.


In 2015, Martins got onto the shortlist of the Kandinsky Prize in the nomination “Young Artist. Project of the Year”.

In 2017, Alexey Martins became the winner of the annual Ruinart Art Patronat Award Contest in the field of contemporary art. 


Martins’ works are found at the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Contemporary Arts Krasnoyarsk
