Gleb Maiboroda (b. 1994, Riga, Latvia) is a visual artist with a background in textiles, working across various mediums such as painting, drawing, performance, text and photography. Central to Gleb's practice is the art of weaving, which serves as a conceptual foundation and inspiration for much of his work and research. His visual work captures the essence of patterns, swirling threads, and the laborious art of textile making, intricately depicting the working bodies and tools. Through his work, Gleb delves into the contemporary landscape of art-making forging deep connections with materials and intertwining narratives of textile traditions and automated production in the digital era.
Gleb is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He holds a BA in TXT (Textiles) from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam (2019) and an MA Art Praxis from the Dutch Art Institute, ArtEZ University of Arts (2023).
