Post-Soviet artist Alexander Kosolapov (b.1943, Moscow) has lived and worked in New York City since 1975. Three years later in 1978, the Sots-Art movement, which employed Western kitsch and aspects of Socialist Realism, was founded by Russian émigré colleagues Komar and Melamid. With irreverent references to Pop Art, Kosolapov often appropriates forms of food product and commodity logos as abstract symbols of Russian ‘state’ power and Soviet political symbolism in his imagery. His work has been widely exhibited with solo shows at Galerie Vallois, Paris, France; Gallery of One Work, Moscow, Russia; Galerie Vorsetzen, Hamburg, Germany; and Ruth Siegel Gallery, New York, NY.
