Evgeny Boikov lives and works between Bishkek and Moscow. He graduated from Azerbaijan Institute of Physical Culture in 1980, and the studio of painting and drawing in 1985. Boikov works across various media including drawing, photography, installation and video. As a witness of the two revolutions that took place in Kyrgyzstan in 2005 and 2010, much of his works is saturated with political awareness. Boikov`s artistic practice has also concerned itself with the emotional and social aspects of protests, which has received international recognition.

Boikov has had various solo exhibitions which include "Ketsin!" in  Shoreditch Town Hall, London (2013), "Kinematics of protest" in Rosenheim, Germany (2012), and "Behind Glass" in Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts, Bishkek (2006). He has also participated in "At the Crossroads" in Sotheby`s, London (2013 and 2014), "Lost to the Future" at the Singapore Biennale " If The World Changed",  Singapore (2013), "Aluminium" at the 5th International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Baku (2009 and 2012), and was also a finalist in the Sovereign Asian Art Prize, Hong Kong (2012).
