Philipp Groubnov


Philipp Groubnov is an interdisciplinary  artist. He was born in Belarus in 1995, where he lived until moving to the Netherlands in 2015 to pursue a career of an artist. Philipp's work is informed by his background in science (having studied in the physics faculty of Belarussian State University), his fascination of the biological systems and their relation to the human symbolism.

Part of Groubnov's family is coming from the rural area of Belarus. Specifically the town-village Zhirovichi where he would often spend summer and winter holidays. Zhirovichi is known in post-soviet area because of one the oldest Orthodox Churches in Belarus and the spring of holy water. The area is surrounded by an abundance of forests and lakes that wrap around the small scarcely populated town. The alienating image of the human symbolism in the context of the wild "nature" populated by different beings inspired Groubnov since young age and formed the basis of his future work.
