Vladimir Arkhipov

Vladimir Arkhipov

Vladimir was born in 1961 in Ryazan, Russia. He lives and works in Moscow.

In 1983 he was graduated as an engineer and started his professional carrer in aviation engineering and construction business. Since 1989 Arkhipov is self-taught artist working in genres of objects and installation. He began exhibiting in 1990 and soon, in 1994, discovered a fascinating phenomenon of modern material culture – hand-made everyday objects. Since then, he works on a web-based database of hand-made functional objects — www.folkforms.ru.
