Guest Juror Boris Ostrerov
Boris Ostrerov earned a BFA in Painting from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and an MFA in Painting and Drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. Upon graduation, he was awarded the SAIC fellowship.
Ostrerov is a painter who uses thick oil paint to explore the suppression and release of energy. Stacking, gravity, excess, and the rectangle’s confines and edges have been recurring themes in his work for several years. Ostrerov’s current work is seductive, juicy, visceral, and grotesque. He has exhibited widely and is earning several opportunities, including the AREA Gallery, Slow Gallery, Paris London Hong Kong (PLHK), and Lubov Gallery. He has been featured in several publications, including New American Paintings #119 and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Ostrerov’s painting was included in the New American Paintings show at the Elmhurst Art Museum in 2016.
Ostrerov currently resides and works in Chicago.
