MARTIAN TABAKOV (1992)
Martian Tabakov ( b. 1992, Sofia, Bulgaria ) is a visual artist working mainly in the fields of sculpture, sculptural installation and drawing.
The human figure is major theme in his art. He engages it as a universal form consisting of many organic forms and develops it to a point where it loses most of its anthropomorphic characteristics. Another perspective in his artwork is the inseparable character of the living body and the environment in which it exists. He is looking for the hypothetical shape of the personal psychological space of the individual. Sound also has a big part in his practice mainly in his sound producing sculptures and specifically developed acoustical spaces.
