Dmitry Kawarga-JM Art Management.jpg

Dmitry Kawarga

Dmitry Kawarga was born in Moscow in 1972. Starting his career in art among Moscow nonconformists, the artist found a recognizable style in biomorphic sculptures and interactive installations. A large cycle of works is based on the synthesis of art and technology created in collaboration with scientists, programmers, and engineers.


Dmitry Kawarga is a mysterious artist. He says: "The artist's personality is inseparable from his creative process." It means that the viewer does not have to know the artist personally; it is enough to be familiar with his works, which are his best representations.


"I like to think of myself as an experimental researcher who exists inside his experiments and can materialize invisible psychophysiological processes, embodying their three-dimensional projections into reality".


Dmitry Kawarga began his career with traditional painting, which gradually became more voluminous and finally turned into sculpture. Further experiments and research led him to create interactive robotic sculptures and installations. The artist creates his biomorphic sculptures from polymers, which can be given any shape. Sometimes, old works that he has lost interest in, Kawarga breaks into pieces and turns into new bodies. Thus, his works go through several cycles of reincarnation.


Despite the scientific and academic nature of his work, Dmitry Kawarga does not look like a science-obsessed “mad professor”, but rather the opposite. The artist lives in the suburbs of Moscow, calls his sculpture house - "Kawarga Hall", and he has many pets, mostly dogs, who live in his yard surrounded by and inside many street sculptures.
