About

Grisha Bruskin was born in 1945 in Moscow, Russia. Bruskin graduated from the Art Department at the Moscow Textile Institute in 1968. The following year he became a member of the Soviet Artists’ Union and had three exhibitions, all of which were closed by the Soviet authorities. In 1988 Bruskin moved from Moscow to New York to pursue his artistic career; the same year his painting, “Fundamental Lexicon” was sold in Moscow at Sotheby’s first Russian Avant-Garde and Soviet Contemporary Art auction. In December of 2012, Bruskin won the Kandinsky Prize in Moscow for his sculpture, H-Hour; this sculpture was part of the exhibition of the same title shown at Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow in 2010. Bruskin is represented in the following public collections: Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois; Galerie de Arte Nacional, Caracas, Venezuela; State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, Russia; The Jewish Museum and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York.
