Tima Radya is definitely one of the most interesting contemporary Russian artists working in public space.

He graduated philosophy at the Ural State University.
Tima’s works provoke a strong social response in Russia, repeatedly becoming a contribution to the discussion about urban space, current social and political problems, or the legality and illegality of art in the city. His art usually takes the form of a monumental and yet minimalistic installations. Most of his work is in the public space of Yekaterinburg.
