Originally Kabardino, Hamid Savkuyef was born in the republic of Kazakhstan in 1964. He studied his true vocation, painting, in St. Petersburg and graduated from the State Institute attached to the famous I.E. Repin Academy of Art and Architecture. He worked in Milnikov’s Studio of Monumental Painting, from where he got his passion for working on a large scale. He is presently member of of the teaching staff of the painting department of the Repin Institute.
His first period could be considered as formal. These works are symbolist, epic and hieratic, with the themes focussing on literary, oneiric, theatrical and cinematographic motifs. However they also have a certain degree of surrealism. He avoids raucous colours and uses a quite cold range. He works a lot with volume and dense masses with often have a stone-like appearance. The characters, although carrying out daily chores, are shown to be distanced and immersed in deep reflex ion, under a light which critics have described as “caravaggiesque”.
Now his work can be found as part of important art collections belonging to different countries around the world. Some of his work is owned by the government of the Russian Federation, the government of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, the United States and the Generalitat, the Catalan autonomous government and the “Knegt-Drenth Foundation.
