Timur Aloev

Timur Aloev was born 1990 in Blagoveschensk, Far East Russia. In 2010 he moved to Czech Republic for his studies at the University of Ostrava and is currently based in Prague. In his artistic practice, Timur predominantly works with mediums of painting, drawing and ceramics. Most of his paintings and objects are connected through a narrative line, complemented by a lyrical and poetic flow and intertwining circular storytelling. The main characters of Aloev's paintings are cartoony animals, fictional creatures who become - under the blue sky in a brightly blooming landscape - witnesses or actors in events that find their antecedents in religious mythology, heroic legends, and stories inspired by Eastern European illustrated fairy tales, American Disney films, and Japanese anime.

Aloev studied at Ostrava University, Faculty of Arts from 2012 to 2016 at the atelier of Book and Packaging design led by Eliška Čabalová and from 2017 to 2018 at the atelier Text Forma Funkce led by Filip Nerad and Jiří Havlíček.
