In May 2013, O.G.I. Publishers published the second extended edition of Leonid Tishkov’s book, How to Become a Genius Artist if You Have No Talent. The book, illustrated by the author, combines in a holistic narrative a number of literary genres: memoirs, stories about artists (ancient Japanese and Chinese artists, European masters from the Renaissance to the 20th century), and descriptions of various art practices. This publication became the most complete biography of Tishkov, who is considered one of the major myth creators of the present day.
The artist will also talk about his recent exhibitions and works included in NCCA’s collection, among which are such famous installation as Solveig, Private Moon, Higher, Higher, and Higher and others.
