Boris Bich was born in 1946 in Latvia, and studied art in Sobolev’s art studio before becoming associated with the Soviet Nonconformist Art movement. Although he has been involved in literature, music and philosophy since the 1960s, Bich is a painter well known for his use of geometric abstraction. He has dedicated his life to the study of the unrealized potential of the Russian Avant-Garde of the early 20th century. His work consists in a constant conceptual experimentation that merges Constructivism and Suprematism. Since 1975 he has had numerous solo exhibitions in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Warsaw, Hamburg, Germany and Austria. He currently lives and works in Moscow.
Some would say that Bich's work is constructivist, in the sense that he likes to take apart geometric shapes of widely recognizable objects and turn them into something completely new, yet still with the same geometric quality. In this way, Bich is a destroyer because he pulls apart the pieces of tangible geometrics that the human brain can easily recognize. His work is abstract because what he creates is not a representation or portrayal of anything, yet it is still powerfully geometric, invoking the question of how abstract the unity really is.
