Viktor Timofeev's practice combines drawing, digital and sculptural work.  He is a prolific draughtsman but also makes computer games and browser based collage puzzles without instructions.  His drawing for Drawing Biennial 2015 is looser, more expressionistic, an interesting new development in his drawing practice.
