Gleb Kryukov


Gleb Kryukov was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia. From an early age Gleb has had the affinity for beauty. He discovered a passion for art as a young boy but did not start making sculptures until his junior year of college. Gleb attended State Marine Technical University of Saint Petersburg, where he studied technology of artistic processing of materials.

Body language and emotion are the main focus of Gleb’s artwork. Gleb strives to achieve clarity of silhouettes, precise lines and the harmony of forms. The artist, whose subjects have otherworldly quality, are frozen in elegant and sometimes bizarre poses, inviting the viewer to imagine the story that the sculptor has suggested in each of his works.

In his Africa series, Gleb captures a pantheon of African animals, each one portrayed with very human emotions. A giraffe reaching towards the starry savannah sky, with its eyes closed, inhales fresh night air and feels ever so free. A lion in an aggressive pose demonstrates the enormous fangs to his opponent, every muscle tense and ready to pounce – an embodiment of a strong and invincible force. Tranquil or fierce, Gleb’s characters are sure to evoke emotion.

Gleb’s exhibitions include, multiple shows in Saint Petersburg, including one at Smolny Palace in 2014, Rome, Italy, and the most resent solo exhibit at Konstantin Palace in Saint Petersburg in the summer of 2016. Gleb’s Hippopotamus and To the Star received 2nd and 3rd prizes respectively at Art Expo in Saint Petersburg, and Sun Worshiper won 3rd prize at Art Week in Rome.
