Echeistov

Georgiy Echeistov (1897-1946)

Until 1918 he studied at the Moscow Stroganov Art and Industry School, department of wood-carving, then transferred to the First Free Art Studios. There he studied without teacher’s guidance and at the B.Grigoryev’s studio he was trained in drawing. He supported the “Leftist” trends in art and literature, and regarded himself to be a futurist. That’s why he produced non-objectivist compositions and wrote verses. His study at the graphic faculty under V.Favorskiy had a profound influence on him. During the subsequent years the artist actively worked in the sphere of book designing: he produced stamps, ex-libris, invitation cards, booklets for exhibitions, etc.
