Egor Buimister (1997) is a contemporary Latvian artist mainly working in painting and drawing techniques.

Egor’s visual art practice, which is heavily influenced by literature, is based on the concepts of nature, memory, religion and mysticism. His art focuses on the themes of transgression, sacred imagery and memory. It studies emanations, silhouettes and shadows of the scenes that do not fully belong to the world that is given to us in perception. Egor’s work depicts the scenes of an individual’s encounter with the unknown, be it in familiar or unfamiliar objects, scenes or circumstances. His artistic manner combines a strong academic foundation with a contemporary influence and the compositional approaches of traditional art, especially that of Japan.

Egor has studied in Camberwell College of Arts, Goldsmiths and King’s College London. His works were exhibited in multiple solo and group shows, such as “An Encounter“ (Riga, 2022), “Young Contemporaries” (London, 2019), and XI Young Painter Prize Finalists Exhibition (Vilnius, 2019). Egor’s art is included in private collections in the United States, the United Kingdom, Latvia, Sweden and Russia, as well as in the collection of Noewe Foundation in Lithuania.
