Michael Cheval


Russian-born surrealist Michael Cheval is a world's leading contemporary artist, specializing in Absurdist paintings, drawings and portraits - each one representing a unique journey into illusion. His work is often metaphorical and requires a sharp eye to decipher the often hidden allusions.

Born in southern Russia, Cheval was exposed to art at an early age by his grandfather, a professional artist and sculptor. Moving into central Europe as a teenager gave him a keen sense of Western culture, and later living in Central Asia gave him the same sense of Eastern culture and philosophy. Today he draws on elements of both to infuse his artistry.
Many of Cheval's images are not titled, inviting viewers to determine their own interpretations. His work, which has been called both metaphorical and ethereal, is collected around the world.
