Kuzmin, Viktor Mikhailovich
Viktor Mikhailovich Kuzmin was born September 10, 1939 in the village of Krupskoe in Russia’s Omsk Province. In 1967 he graduated from the Leningrad Vera Mukhina Higher School of Art and Design, and became part of a large cohort of Mukhina artists who arrived to Almaty to work in monumental art.
His two known works in Almaty, a mural at a children’s hospital and a wooden bas-relief at the Arman cinema, have both been lost.
Elsewhere in Kazakhstan, Kuzmin created mosaics at the Omega factory school in Uralsk (1975) and the Chardara hydroelectric dam (1980).
