Michael Cheval is the world's leading contemporary artist , specializing in absurd paintings , drawings and portraits. In his definition, " absurdity " is an inverted side or reality, a reverse side of logic. It does not emerge from the dreams of surrealists , or the work of the subconscious. It is a game of imagination, where all ties are carefully chosen to construct a literary plot . Any one of Cheval 's paintings is a map of his journey into illusion . His work is often metaphorical and requires a sharp eye to decipher the often hidden allusions .
Born in 1966 in Kotelnikovo , a small town in southern Russia , Cheval developed passion for art in his early childhood. When his family moved to Germany in 1980, the Western European culture has made a big impression on the young artist. In 1986 , he moved to Turkmenistan and Ashgabat is a graduate from the School of Fine Arts Absorbing Eastern philosophy and the character of Central Asia , he began working as an independent professional artist , shaping his style and surrealistic direction . His decision to emigrate to the United States in 1997 began a new era for the artist. He returned to Western culture that greatly inspired him in German youth , but now he has brought his experience , his philosophy , and vision.
In 1998 , Cheval became a member of the prestigious National Arts Club in New York, where he was distinguished with the Exhibition Committee Award in 2000 .
