Michael Ouzikov is an artist, architect, designer and writer born in Ekaterinburg, Russia, graduated from the Art and Architectural Academy in 1990 with a Masters Degree in Art and Architecture. On top of this, he completed one more year doing post-graduate work at the Liverpool University School of Artists and Architects, in Liverpool, England in 1990-91.
Michael has taken part in more than 50 exhibitions. His paintings now live in prestigious private collections and galleries around the world in England, Netherlands, Germany, Canada, United States, France, Japan, Russia and Portugal.
The variety and effects in Ouzikov’s art rely on his skillful manipulations of colour and movement – solid volumetric colour massifs, repeated and rearranged in layers of contrasting planes, in visible three-dimensional strokes. Not one of his works imposes a single point of view. Much like a concert, a film or an opera – he leaves it to the viewer to decipher a set of symbols and allegories to form their sense of the experience, of the story.
Michael lives and works in Toronto, Canada since 1997.
