Dashi Namdakov,(born 1967), is a Russian sculptor, graphic artist and jeweler, member of the Russian Union of Artist, corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Fine Arts
Dashi's creative work is unique. He is a sculptor - a graphic artist, a jeweler and a designer in one person.
In his artistic "palette" researchers are finding in surprise the coexistence of monumental, decorative, easel and small plastic works, various colors of patina on bronze, drawing on paper, various technologies of creating jewelry, sketches for tapestries and an ability to work with a film group (the film "Mongol" by Sergei Bodrov). In the Soviet period such "approach" towards the art was not possible for an artist, traditionally trained in the country's higher education institutions.
Universalism is also the legacy of the nomad steppe culture, when the patriarch was supposed to be a warrior, a cattle farmer and a blacksmith and also know how to build a yurt and hunt for the clan to survive.
Namdakov is a renowned sculptor in Russia with a growing following in North America and Europe and his work can be found in public collections including: the State Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the State Museum of Oriental Arts in Moscow, the Russian Contemporary Art Museum in Moscow, Tibet House in New York City and the Guangzhou Museum of Art in China. Private collections include the Russian President V. Putin, Roman Abramovich and collectors in the USA, UK and internationally.
