Maxim Shishov

By education Maxim is a Psychologist and Teacher of Deviant Behavior, a member of the Trade Union of Artists of Russia.

Maxim is trying to reveal the sacred themes of humanity through minimalist paintings and art objects.

Maxim does not limit himself in materials and tries to convey ideas in the most appropriate way (installation, painting, photo).

To create his works, Maxim often uses unnecessary (discarded) materials, as well as canvases of his own production, which he makes from advertising banners that are not recycled.
