Andrey Bogush
Visual artist. Born in St. Petersburg, currently lives and works in Helsinki.

The work is Andrey Bogush is what many critics call "the New Formalism". They are collages of photos processed in Photoshop. Andrey modifies his works into something that partially resembles abstract painting, created from diagrams, vector shapes and patterns. The artist intuitively connects digital levels into one single image that negates any possible limitations in modern photography.

Works by Andrey Bogush have been exhibited at the Finnish Museum of photography in Helsinki (2016), the Tate Modern in London (2014), the Kunsthalle in Helsinki (2015), the Chelsea Art Museum in new York (2011), the Einar Jonsson Museum in Reykjavik (2014), as well as galleries in Milan, Zurich, 2014, bogus did a series of works commissioned by Prada.
