Kostantin Khudyakov

Konstantin Khudyakov was born in the Saratov region of Russia in 1945.  He currently lives and works in Moscow. An architect and industrial designer, he studied at the Moscow Architecture Institute (MapxИ). Khudyakov was one of the first artists to use digital media, inventing "Multi-Touch Art", through which digital images are processed on a computer and then presented on an interactive screen. Always fascinated by an idiosyncratic perception of the world around him, he has tried (first as an architect and then as an artist) to interact and change the viewer’s own perception.  In this sense, the cinema has played an important role in the creation of his works that were initially characterized by mega screens reproducing images of a stereoscopic and perimetral vision, similar to that of a fly, and which later evolved into interactive systems.

Khudyakov's works are on permanent display at the State Tretyakov Gallery and the M'ARS Museum in Moscow; the Yaroslavl Art Museum in Russia; the ZigZag Venture Group corporate collection in the U.S.; and the Crystal Art Co. collection in Japan. Among the most important exhibitions in which he has participated are: Russian XX Century Art at the Nassau County (New York) Museum (1992); Hotel Russia at the Tallinn International Print Triennial (2001); and Pushkin Fantasie at the Moscow Art Centre (2009).
