Viktor Pivovarov is a painter, graphic artist and a writer. He is one of the founders of Moscow conceptualism. Together with Ilya Kabakov he invented a conceptual album genre. Pivovarov is interested in the inner life of a person, his artworks are puzzles composed of reflections, real and fantastic images. The artist's works are in the collections of the Tretyakov Gallery and the Russian Museum.
The ‘June-June’ sextet of paintings and graphic sheets arose as an ‘immediate’ reaction on the first meeting with Pivovarov’s future wife Milena. Due to the bulkiness of the painting series and special exposition restrictions, it is very difficult to display it. In more than forty years since its inception, it has exhibited only twice. Therefore, Pivovarov gladly took the opportunity to transfer it into such a democratic form, as a graphic series. The silkscreen technique is a perfect match to the ascetic language of the images.
