Oleg Lobykin has roots in a tradition of the old work craft of stone carving yet considers himself “an international man and product of globalization.” He defies labels and strives to show how old and new, timeless and contemporary, familiar and unexpected elements can combine to reveal hidden truths. His work explores connections between what is known and emerging insights about the nature of life. Respecting the past while reaching toward the future, his work reflects the dynamic evolving reality of the present. Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, Oleg now resides in Silicon Valley. He is a sculptor interested in conceptual art and likes to use modern tools and technology as an opportunity to reach new heights.
