Egor Buimister

Egor Buimister (1997 Riga, Latvia) aims to create artworks which serve as independent visual texts, focusing on the theme of sacredness and sometimes obscure relationships of contemporary man with metaphysical reality.

Working mainly on paper with watercolour or acrylics paint and ink, Egor values the direct simplicity of these materials, self-restraint that they introduce and the precision needed to achieve the aesthetic quality he's aiming for. He also values the fact that these materials are close to those used in the process of writing, feeling that this leads to better expression of the borderline nature of his artwork, placing it somewhere between the realms of visual and literary art.
