Vadim Fishkin was born in 1965 in Penza, Russia. He graduated from the Moscow Institute of Architecture in 1986.
Many of Fishkin’s installations, sculptures, photographs, and drawings – dealing with such topics as geography, time, light, aeronautics, and meteorology – are informed by his distinctive sense of humor. Fishkin’s work explores the relationships between science, personal experience, desire, and the imagination, between metaphysics and pragmatism, and between the artificial and the real. He lives and works in Ljubljana, Slovenija.
