“As an actor gets into the mindset of his character, I must try to gauge the strengths and weaknesses of my creation...the sculpture comes to life and possesses a soul.”

Creating his own characters brought great joy to Victor as a child. Swapping his toys for plasticine, he observed animals, monitoring their movements and behaviour.

Inspiration

During his studies at the Krasnoyarsk State Art Institute in Siberia, his affinity for nature was coupled with the study of anatomy. This led to a fascination with the plasticity and innate freedom of an animal’s movement.

Now living in Moscow, Victor uses clay for large sculptures and plasticine for smaller forms with intricate details. After moulding the sculptures, he casts them in bronze.

He has exhibited worldwide – including Russia, Portugal, Germany and Dubai – but says the moon is next!

Victor says: “Through each work, I portray a piece of myself. As an actor gets into the mindset of his character, I must try to gauge the strengths and weaknesses of my creation. Consequently, the sculpture comes to life and possesses a soul.”
