Oleksandr Kuzmin was born in 1979 in Kharkiv, Ukraine. After finishing the elementary school he chose his further education to be directed towards art and sculpture. Kuzmin graduated from the Kharkiv Industrial Arts Institute in 1998. He continued his studies at the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Kiev, where he gained significant knowledge on statuary.

After graduating, he was an active participant of the Ukrainian art scene, presenting his artworks in significant national group exhibitions as well as in remarkable solo exhibitions. Kuzmin achieved numerous public works placed throughout Ukraine and dedicated to various significant topics, events and individuals.

Kuzmin’s sculptures are different in both themes and interpretations. His favorite material is bronze because due to its plasticity the artist easily reproduces his interesting and innovative arrangements and complicated motion lines which are often present in his work. Each of his artworks firmly holds space around itself, and the plasticity of the forms creates interesting silhouettes. Very often with a more detailed viewing of the work, we start to notice barely visible, but important details. They are bringing not only the element of suddenness, but also complementing the composition. His works are full of inner harmony and outer beauty.

He is the member of the National Artists’ Union of Ukraine since 2000.

Kuzmin’s artworks are held in public and private collections in France, Hungary, India, Italy, Poland, UAE, Ukraine, USA and other countries.
