Igor Litvinov was born in 1962 in Vitebsk, a city which is one of the centers of classical avant-garde, where Chagall, Malevich, Lisitsky and other representatives of this trend lived and created. This determined the creative path of the author, who works in the style of abstract expressionism.
From 1983 to 1988 Litvinov studied at the Art and Graphic Department of Vitebsk State Pedagogical University.
At the end of the 1980s, he began attending the studio of Alexander Solovyov, the oldest abstractionist in Belarus. The relationship between the master and his pupil grew into a great friendship. It was this communication that laid the foundation on which Igor Litvinov's own style was formed.
From 1995 to 2017 Igor Litvinov lived in Nazareth, Israel. During this period the artist worked and exhibited a lot in different countries: Spain, Sweden, USA, etc.
In 2005, at the MoRA Museum in New Jersey, he took part in an exhibition devoted to Malevich, where works by Malevich and many nonconformists from Russia were on display.
Together with his creative work, his spiritual worldview is formed. Years of research into the phenomenon of personal freedom, the relationship between personal and creative freedom, the relationship between religion and contemporary art - all this is the basis of the artist's paintings.
Since 2017 Igor Litvinov lives and works in Moscow, is active in creative work, exhibiting in leading art spaces.
