Daniel Spivakov was born in 1996 and spent his childhood in Kyiv, Ukraine. At 15, he moved to Oklahoma through a family-exchange programme. Only speaking his native language, it was during this time that art became a critical vessel of communication for Spivakov. The mixture of a post-Soviet upbringing and adolescence in the southern part of the USA enabled a unique worldview that Spivakov regularly draws upon during his process. After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2020, he now lives and works in Berlin.
