Grisha Bruskin in Elephant Magazine 

The current issue of Elephant magazine features an extensive interview with Grisha Bruskin. The artist’s conversation with journalist Katya Tylevich explores a number of topics, including Bruskin’s artistic reception in New York, his process of working, recurrent motifs, and his current artistic output. Born in 1945 in Moscow, Bruskin graduated from the Art Department at the Moscow Textile Institute in 1968. Refusing to adhere to the government-sanctioned style of Socialist Realism, Bruskin became a major figure in the Soviet Non-Conformist Art movement, dedicating himself to the research and presentation of his Jewish heritage and its associated mythologies, mysticism, and sacred texts. A prolific writer as well as visual artist, Bruskin's work is included in many permanent public collections, such as The Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York; The Jewish Museum, New York, New York; Kunsthalle Emden, Germany; State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, Russia; State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia, and Museo Galeria de Arte, Caracas, Venezuela.
