Erik Vladimirovich Bulatov was born on Sepember 5, 1933 in Sverdlovsk (now Ekaterinburg), where his father was sent for work from Moscow. Bulatov’s family came back to Moscow in 1936, where he lives since then (from 1989 to 1991 he lived in New York, from 1991 to the present – mostly lives in Paris). In 1952 – 1958 Bulatov studied at Surikov Art Institute. Throughout the 1950s he regularly worked with Robert Falk and Vladimir Favorsky, whom he considers his teachers. In 1967 he became a member of the Union of Artists of the USSR (as an illustrator of children’s books, on which he worked in collaboration with Oleg Vassiliev). He was practically not exhibited in the USSR (the exhibition at the Kurchatov Institute in 1964 was immediately closed by the authorities, in 1968 there was a one-day exhibition in the Blue Bird cafe). His first solo exhibition took place in 1988 at the Museum of Fine Arts of Zurich, immediately after it at the Center Georges Pompidou (the first among Russian contemporaries). Bulatov took part in the Venice Biennale, in the Biennale of Gwangju where he was award in 1997. His art has been repeatedly shown in European museums. The most large-scale exhibitions were held at the State Tretyakov Gallery (2006) and the Moscow Manege (2014).
