Igor Kormyshev treats art as the ground for experiments, reinventing the old media and searching for the new ones and alongside with it for his own style and identity. His works draw the viewer into playing with various art movements such as expressionism, symbolism, surrealism, and avant-garde. Igor Kormyshev creates not just ‘a piece of art’ but ‘projects’ combining different arts - painting, graphics, photography, text, and dance.
