Artem Mirolevich

(Minsk, Belarus March 11, 1976 -)


Artem Mirolevich was born in the city of Minsk, Belarus and, at the age of 17, moved to Buffalo, USA. Soon after, he was granted a full scholarship and enrolled in the School of Visual Art in New York City and later at Rietvield Art Academy of Amsterdam. New York and Amsterdam's cultural and architectural landscape shaped Artem’s artistic vision.
As of today, Artem participated in over 100 solo and group exhibitions in museums, galler-ies and art fairs around the world. Within last year, Mirolevich traveled for the exhibitions in Venice (Italy), followed by a show at Croatian Maritime Museum in Split (Croatia), Kyoto (Japan), Doha (Qatar), and Miami (USA)
Artem’s high skill for extreme detail and ambitious composition is present in all his works, whether etchings, oils on canvas or multimedia installation. Each piece is a tale of its own, a surrealist tale of otherworldly places, people, unusual settings, where the artist’s imagina-tion is completely set free. Mirolevich’s work is a portal to the bizarre, meta-civilization, where doom and hope co-exist. The artist is not afraid to make political statements on global governance, war and conflict or decadence, thus offering more layers that the eye can examine in his very richly worked compositions.
