Locoman Lyovochkin Posthumously Becomes Star of Naive Art

Architectural objects of “Square of Wooden Architecture” by the Moscow metro locoman Nikolai Lyovochkin, who became famous after his death in 2008, will be displayed at his first exhibition in the Shchusev Moscow Museum of Architecture from 6 September.
       Nikolai Lyovochkin was never an architect by profession: throughout his entire life he worked as the machinist of the Moscow metro, but dedicated all his spare time to creating architectural objects from chess, clocks, garlands and other household materials.
       After the artist’s death his relatives were about to throw away this specific heritage to disposal dump, but somehow it occurred to them to take the art objects to the Museum of Architecture. After two years the exhibition of Nikolai Lyovochkin’s works was a success in Archipel Museum (Lyon, France).
       The exhibition will run in Moscow till 10 October 2011.
