LUDMILLA RADCHENKO


Nasce l'11 novembre 1978 a Omsk in Siberia, dove si diploma in Fashion Design nel 1999.
Nello stesso anno approda in Italia, dove lavora come modella, show-girl e attrice fino al 2008.
Nel 2009, dopo un corso alla New York Film Academy negli USA, Ludmilla decide di dedicarsi totalmente alla sua più grande passione: la pittura. Dopo il concorso internazionale di pittura Gemlucart di Monaco inizia la sua collaborazione con l'Opera Gallery, una delle 11 omonime gallerie presenti in tutto il mondo. La sua arte, dai tratti pop pieni di vitalità, la conduce fino al PopRealism, corrente artistica a cui aderisce Ludmilla. L'arte urlata di Ludmilla si nutre di vita reale, si ciba di icone, drammi, percorsi di vita, successi e speranze comuni. Nascono elaborati digitali da foto e scansioni, che uniti alla pittura materica creano composizioni ricche di messaggi visivi, collage di vita reale con pennellate d'ironia. Da dicembre 2010 è nelle librerie Feltrinelli il suo primo catalogo: 'POWER POP' edito da Skira, con la critica di Fortunato D'Amico curatore ufficiale.
Ludmilla realizza un quadro su commissione per il campione di moto GP Jorge Lorenzo, nel settembre 2011 il cantante Jamiroquai autografa un'opera della pittrice e ne detiene una per sé. L'arte di Ludmilla non si limita alla tela, ma varca ambiti come il design, con personalizzazione degli spazi e degli arredi, da qui nascono collaborazioni con Woog e Fiorucci, crea una linea di foulards con stampe d'arte, tocca campi come la gastronomia con la customizzazione di bottiglie di vino Franciacorta rivestite di Pop. A novembre 2011 produce il primo video-arte 'Woman Been'. L'arte di Ludmilla viaggia da Milano, Venezia, Monaco, New York, fino ad approdare alla 54. Biennale di Viterbo e Torino.


Ludmilla Radchenko was born in Omsk, Siberia, on 11 November 1978. After attending Art School, she was graduated in design in 1999. That same year she moved to Italy, where she started working as a model, and shortly afterwards debuted on television. Nonetheless her passion for painting remained so pronounced that in 2005, during her participation in a reality show in Africa, she decided to completely dedicate herself to this art form.
In the summer of 2008 the “L'arte di essere donna” project was born; it was conceived, created and interpreted by Ludmilla Radchenko, and later where published as a special insert for the entire print run in the October 2008 issue of Maxim; her twelve paintings were subsequently displayed at Palazzo Venini, in the heart of Milan, announcing her entrance in a new world. In December 2008 she travelled to the United States, where she attended language and acting courses in New York. The following exhibitions where always some kind of tribute or to some metropolises or different celebrities, who became an IKON of social reality.
In February 2010 Ludmilla was invited to participate at the CowParade in Rome. The artist executed Lady Candy Pop, a cow exposed in the hart of Rome and started to become the cult work at that international event. During Design Week in Milan she takes part in the artistic installation project of Gobbetto Resin Solutions at the Triennale di Milano, where the artist presented two works of a gigantic patchwork. On 2010 she inaugurated her solo shows at the Museo di Arte Contemporanea of Lucca, Lu.C.C.A., curated by Maurizio Vanni; at Theatre LA SCALA, organized and curated by GIGART Art Finance and a collective exhibition at Palazzo Torlonia in Rome, curated by the Galleria Ca' d'Oro. During the same period she was chosen for the iternational painting competition Gemlucart of Monaco. She embarked upon her collaboration with Opera Gallery of Monte Carlo and the Grimaldi Forum, later presented at the International Clubbing Show.
The year was celebrated with a presentation of her first book-catalogue “POWER POP” curated by Fortunato D'Amico(her official art curator) and published by SKIRA at Design Library. In 2011 after her solo exhibition at Casa Delle Culture Del Mondo where she was supported by province of Milan and Design Week 2011 Ludmilla dedicates to show her work abroad, following IMAFESTIVAL EATING ART in New York, where she was selected like an emergent PopArt artist and exposed in some galleries in New York.
