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.

Although a figurative artist, Egor believes that his works investigate the imaginary representation rather than illustrate objects directly. Egor's art studies emanations, silhouettes and shadows that allow tracing an object that is either long gone or does not fully belong to the world that is given to us in perception. 

Egor mainly works in painting and drawing techniques, making series of artworks or albums that are connected by the common idea or constructible narrative, 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.
