Pavel Vasil’evich LIUBARSKY
(1891-1968)

 

Born in Khabarovsk, Russia, 1891. Studied at an art school in Moscow. During the Revolution, returned to his hometown and founded "Green Cat", a group of Futurist artists. They created many political caricatures. 1922, moved to Valdivostok and continued his activity there, and moved again to Moscow in 1927. In Japan, a linocut brought by Burliuk, known as the father of Russian Futurism, garnered great attention and was exhibited in Tokyo and Osaka. Passed away in 1968, age 77.

 

Illustrated Book "TOKI NO WASUREMONO Vol. 3" includes works by Kusama Yayoi and Liubarsky. The name "Liubarsky", whose work was part of the first Russian art exhibition to travel Japan in 1920, has been forgotten, but the original linocut plate that was brought along at the time encountered a strange fate and made it into the hands of a certain collector. The chaos of the Russian Revolution in the Russian Far East, the expression of Eros reflecting uncertainty with no end in sight; this is brought back to life from the plates.
