Andrei Davidoff

b. Sydney, 1982. Lives in Melbourne

Travels in Asia, in particular, China and Japan have enabled me to encounter the eastern aesthetic and ceramic tradition. This has been a great influence on my work. The swirling ensos of a Zen monk have mixed with the saturated neon skyline of Shanghai, and the rough geometric construction of the Sodeisha movement combined with the narrow mudbrick alleys of ancient Xi’an form an influence which feeds into my practice. Currently I am interested in inversing the relationship between drawing and sculpture, to create abstract drawings by using sculptural forms as the armature for the linear and planar.

Andrei Davidoff is currently a Candidate for Master of Fine Art RMIT University and in 2010 completed a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Arts) at RMIT.
