Micha Lobi

MichaLobi (1967, Siberia) lives and works in Russia. In his work, Lobi focuses mainly on the unusual and estranging aspects of daily life. Simultaneously, his works show a great enthusiasm and zest for life. Lobi wants to battle the superficial and easy accessible character of our current world, dominated by multi-media. In turn, he wants people to really look at and discover the content of his paintings, by making them as interesting and surprising as possible. He receives his inspiration from works that were made in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Europe.
