Guest Artist: Stas Orlovski

Photo credit: Portrait Photograph of Stas Orlovski courtesy of Austin SongStas Orlovski is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work includes painting, drawing and animation. He was born in 1969 in Kishinev, Moldova. When he was a child, his family fled the Soviet Union to Tel Aviv, then Paris, to eventually settle in Toronto, Canada. Orlovski studied art in Toronto and Los Angeles, receiving a BFA from York University, a B.Ed from the University of Toronto and an MFA from the University of Southern California.

Orlovski has exhibited widely throughout the U.S. with solo shows in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and San Francisco. His work has been included in many national museum exhibitions including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. His work has also been represented in international public and corporate collections.

In 2012, Orlovski was commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to create a site-specific installation for “Drawing Surrealism”, a survey exhibition of Surrealist Drawing co-organized by LACMA and the Morgan Library and Museum in NYC. Entitled “Nocturne”, the LACMA installation marked Orlovski’s first foray into stop-motion animation by combining wall drawing and collage with projected animated sequences. In 2013, “Nocturne” was reinstalled in a solo presentation at VOLTA NY and at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. Iterations of the project were exhibited at Traywick Contemporary in Berkeley, Marine Salon in Santa Monica and the Miami Project Art Fair. Orlovski is currently debuting his latest work in one-person exhibitions at the Pasadena Museum of California Art and Mixed Greens, NYC.
