Overview

Ivan Chuikov was born in 1935 in the family of the classic of socialist realism Semyon Chuikov and the artist Evgenia Maleina. From 1948 to 1954, he studied at the Moscow Secondary School of the Surikov Art Institute, and from 1954 to 1960 ­– at the Surikov Art Institute. During the late 60s – early 70s, he was a member of the Sretensky Boulevard Group. The window ­– a symbolic motif for Chuikov's work – was first used in 1967 ('Window,' collection of Bar-Gera) and later developed into his most extensive series, that includes over  80 works. In 1976, the first unofficial exhibition of the artist took place – in the workshop of Leonid Sokov. In 1977, the artist represented the USSR at the Venice Biennale, and in 1979 he took part in an exhibition at the Pompidou Center. In the 80s, he collected material for A-YA magazine dedicated to unofficial Russian art. Around the 1980s, Chuikov began to use the fragmentation method, which he applied to images of art history, everyday objects (Fragments of the Interior, 1995), and, later, sign systems ('Fragments of Newspapers', 1996; 'Used Signs,' 2015). In the late 80s, Ivan Chuikov did his first personal projects abroad. Since 1990, the artist lived between two cities, Cologne and Moscow, returning to his homeland to work on exhibitions – Theory of Reflection in 1992, And a Beautiful View from the Window in 2000 (all at OVCHARENKO), Labyrinths in 2010 (Moscow Museum of Modern Art). From 2006, Ivan Chuikov lived in Dusseldorf, where he died in November 2020.
