Babi Badalov is an Azeri artist and poet. After finishing art college in his native country, he left to St. Petersburg in 1980, where he soon became an influential underground artist and a member of the unofficial Association of Experimental Visual Art (TEII). As a visual artist, he expresses his ideas through art objects, paintings, installations and live performances. He also experiments with words and writes improvisational poetry, mixing languages and images of different cultures. Recently, Badalov’s work has been dedicated to linguistic explorations, researching the limits of language and the borders it imposes upon its users.
