Vladimir Logutov was born in Samara in 1980. In 1996–2001, he studied at the faculty of painting at the Art College of Samara; in 2002–2006, he attended Samara State University of Social Sciences and Education, majoring in fine art. In 2005, he obtained an independent art scholarship of the Stuttgarter Kunstverein e.v. (Stuttgart, Germany). Besides that, he was a co-founder and a member of the 'Laboratory' group.
From 2005 till the beginning of the 10s, the artist's major media was video. While still a student, in 2005, he showed the work 'Rubik's Cube' at the ArtDigital festival (a collateral event of the 1st Moscow Biennale). In 2007, the young artist took part in two Special Projects of the II Moscow Biennale: the 'Urban Formalism' with his video 'Expectation' and the 'Witnesses of the Impossible' with his video 'Episode.' Vladimir Logutov was on the shortlist of the Kandinsky Prize in 2007 (works 'Expectation' and 'Unnecessary') and 2008 ("Interpenetration of the Visible and Actual"). In addition, his video 'Pause' was featured in the collateral program of the Venice Biennale (2011).
By the end of the decade, Logutov turned to the painting. In the 'Boom' project for OVCHARENKO (until 2018 - Regina), he combined video projection featuring a dark post-apocalyptic landscape with bright luminous paintings, reversing the conventional qualities of these two media. Afterwards, in 2016, the artist presented the 'Meetings' project, which entirely consisted of paintings. There, he turned this traditional type of visual art into a curatorial project. "Exhibition-within-a-picture" is a concept still present in the artist’s work nowadays..
At the exhibitions 'The Conquered City' (2009) and 'The Industrial Ruins', the artist exhibited sculptural works. They were rails and metal gratings bent by workers of a metallurgical plant. And the video 'The Work' filmed during the production of the pieces reveals the participatory component of his art.

ZDRAVSTVUYTE!Group exhibition 26 Jul - 7 Sep 2023OVCHARENKO presents a new collective project in the framework of co-operation with the auction house VLADEY. The name of the exhibition of OVCHARENKO artists "HELLO!" (ZDRAVSTVUYTE!) has a double meaning. The complexity and at the same time the beauty of the Russian language allows you to find in the simple word "Hello!" both a wish of good health and a greeting at a meeting. And the meeting at the exhibition will be held with marvelous artists and their works of art.
For 33 years of his work OVCHARENKO, while the first exhibition of the gallery (then called "Regina") was held in September 1990, 278 group and solo exhibitions were held. In religion "33 years" are the age of Jesus Christ — the time of perfection, the period of life when the peak has been reached. Christ's rebirth occurred at the same time when he was 33, so " HELLO!" (ZDRAVSTVUYTE!).
Vladimir Ovcharenko, founder of VLADEY and OVCHARENKO: "The time in our country and in the world is not easy. And when was it easy? It is very complicated for artists now. Their world has completely changed. For many of them it has turned out to be tragic, while others continue to create magnificent works of art. We are happy to represent the best of the best, it is a great honour and responsibility. Moscow is a world-class cultural centre. And it always will be. It deserves new great art exhibitions. And they are coming!".
Over the last year and half OVCHARENKO in co-operation with VLADEY has frequently presented personal exhibitions of its artists, among them projects made by Alisa Gorshenina, Sergey Zarva, Alexey Kallima, Pavel Pepperstein and the PPSS art group, Ivan Razumov, Inal Savchenkov, Leonid Tshe and Nestor Engelke.
