Ukrainian, 1887-1964. Best known for his Cubist sculpture, Alexander Archipenko used his art to explore the human form and space. Along with his sculpture, Archipenko created what he called "sculto-paintings" which incorporated sculptural elements into painting. He lived in Paris and Berlin, exhibiting, lecturing and opening art schools, until 1923 when he immigrated to the United States. Archipenko continued to experiment with mixed-media and kinetic sculpture along with teaching and lecturing for the remainder of his career.
