  STUDIO 30    



 STUDIO 30 - is, above all, a creative collaboration of two Moscow based artists - Lily Balasanova and Sergei Kolevatykh.

While participating in numerous exhibitions throughout Russia and abroad, the artists began to formulate what would eventually become a unified context for their varied art practice.
STUDIO 30 first emerged as an idea in 2001 and was soon realized into a full-blown gallery-project that allowed the artists to weave their work into a single conceptual narrative.


STUDIO 30 presents art projects exploring various aspects of contemporary urban civilization and rapidly changing global modernity. 
According to Balasanova and Kolevatykh, the ability to stay abreast with the rapid pace of time is by far one of the most important traits of a modern artist. For them, art is not a reflection of any particular reality, but an integral part of birth and transformation of paradigms that shape these realities.
In the recent series of art projects united by the general title "Break of Dimensions" Lily Balasanova and Sergei Kolevatykh suggest their understanding of crucially changing actuality in the informational turbulence of the postindustrial era.


 In recent years STUDIO 30  has come to include artists and curators from the USA, Holland and France. A community has developed through years of fruitful exchange of creative experience and a happy discovery of similarity in the understanding of various contemporary phenomena.
The project now includes: Pat van Boeckel, (the Netherlands), Karin van der Molen (the Netherlands), Slava Balasanov (USA) and Olga Yaker (France).
