Kostya Koposov


Kostya Koposov, a Ukrainian-born artist and architect residing in Germany, stands as a prominent figure among the first generation of young Ukrainian artists.

Educational Journey:

School of Arts, specializing in violin, 1998-2001.

National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, pursuing Architecture, 2009-2014, under the tutelage of Schpara in his studying studio, leading to both a Bachelor's and Master's degree.

Lviv Polytechnics, specializing in Architecture and Construction, 2013-2014, resulting in a second Master's degree.

Kostya embarked on his artistic path at the age of 16, leaving the High School of Fine Arts to enroll in the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Kiev. There, he acquired a profound understanding of composition and a nuanced appreciation for color, elements that would come to define his painting, mirroring the clarity of forms and structures evident in his architectural pursuits. Concurrently, he pursued a second Master's degree in architecture at the National Lviv Polytechnics.

Koposov's artistic journey reached a milestone with his inaugural major retrospective, "Dominance of Volume," hosted at the "365" gallery in Kiev in 2012. This marked a confident stride toward the successful commencement of his artistic career. Subsequently, his exhibitions expanded beyond the borders of Ukraine, becoming integral components of global group exhibitions. Kostya's participation in international and domestic showcases, competitions, and festivals, including those in Germany, Turkey, Bulgaria, and St. Petersburg, has earned him acclaim in the realms of conceptual painting, fine arts, and photography. His accolades serve as a testament to the multidimensional excellence that defines Kostya Koposov's artistic endeavors.
