Bakhtov, Vladimir (Ukrainian), b. 1954

Vladimir Bakhtov (b. 1954): Graduate of the Graphic Arts Faculty of Odessa Pedagogical Institute. From the early years of his artistic career he adopted a Surrealistic approach, evoking in his etchings and oil paintings the old world of ancient myths and pagan rituals seen through the lens of his time. As many other Ukrainian non-conformist artists, Bakhtov draws his inspiration from both his native artistic heritage and Western contemporary art.

For many years he lived near the archaeological site of Olvia - the ruins of the ancient Greek colony, in Crimea. It inspired him to execute a series of prints Tavrian Mysteries (1987) [Vladimir Bakhtov Dream (Series Tavrian Mysteries) II/X signed 1999 etching 66x81cm], Cymmerian Winds (1986) [Vladimir Bakhtov The Birth of the Storm (Series Cymmerian Winds) II/X signed 1999 etching 66x77cm], Ancient Land of Tavria (1991).

The world of mysterious ruins, abundant with the living and populated by ghosts, executed in a surrealistic style seems to be outside living time and to have no reference to the 'real' everyday life of his Soviet compatriots. Recognised by the authorities of the Perestroika period for his talent, Bakhtov exhibited widely in the Ukraine, Russia and the West and his works are in the collections of such museums as the Tretyakov Gallery (Moscow) and the Ukrainian Art Museum (Kiev).
