Savva Max

Maxim Savva was born in 1972 in Khabarovsk at the Far East of the Soviet Union. He studied Architecture in Pacific State University. He lives in Saint-Petersburg since 1999.

Main feature of Maxim’s art is a failure fixed in every work. Color scale is blurred and contains mostly shades of grey, recalling the world seen by a short-sighted person. Solitude is the main theme through all his paintings; while there is no drama but irony.

Maxim likes to cite music tracks or famous paintings as a names of his own works. There is no meaning in his works but part of his soul.

Afro-Matisse is part of a selection of 197 artworks of renown artists, curated by Michael Schmidt-Ott, that will be auctioned for the benefit of Desideria Care e. V. on October 5th in Cologne by Sotheby's. The auction is a cooperation of several Rotary clubs from Vienna and Cologne, too.
