Alexander Brodsky, whose work recently became a part of the UniCredit Art Collection, has received this year's prestigious Kandinsky Prize, the largest independent Russian award for contemporary art.
Brodsky's work "White Windows", consisting of six light boxes with acrylic on plexiglass and wood, was acquired by UniCredit from the Galleria Milano in Italy.
Brodsky (born in Moscow in 1955) studied at the Moscow Architectur Institute and entered the international art scene in the mid 1980s with works possessing an imaginative and visionary strength. Since the late 1990s, he has worked as an architect, designer and artist both in Europe and United States.
