In his practice Georgy Litichevsky works with the aesthetics of a comic book. This method allows him to use any kind of material, ranging from a magazine page to a gallery wall, and to touch any kind of topic. A graduate in the field of ancient history, he often speaks about events of the past. Philosophical speculations, reflections on Russian and foreign literature and folklore, an artistic view of science – all this can be found in his projects. Litichevsky turns his artworks into replete and often ironic stories; they are windows in parallel worlds, always closely connected with ours.

In 1985-1986 Litichevsky collaborated with the group «Detsky Sad», and in 1986 he founded the art group “George & George” together with Georgy Ostretsov. From 1990 to 1992 he was a member of BOLI, the group, which he co-founded with Farid Bogdalov. In 2005-2010 Litichevsky organized performances as a member of a perform-group “Zianida”. Since 1993 he has been one of the editors of “The Art Journal”, founded by Viktor Miziano.

Georgy Litichevsky was born in 1956 in Dnepropetrovsk and now lives and works in Moscow and in Nürnberg. In 1979 he graduated from the Moscow State University, department of history. Among his solo exhibitions are projects at Vadim Sidur Museum in Moscow (2018), at the State Museum of Modern Art in Thessaloniki (2016), Kunstaschranne art center in Weissenburg (2014).
