Daniel Spivakov was born in 1996 and spent his childhood in Kiev, Ukraine. At the age of 15, he moved to Oklahoma, USA, through a family-exchange programme. Without speaking the language upon moving, it was there that art became his main concern. The mixture of a post-soviet upbringing and a personal maturation in the Southern part of the USA gave him an unusual perspective on contemporary culture. Since 2017, he has been living in London where he finished his studies in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
