David Ter-Oganyan (b. 1981) got into the art world in a very young age. Together with his friends, father and more veteran colleagues from the Moscow actionist movement in the end of 1990's they created various actions combining art and political anarchism. This continued to the 2000's when Ter-Oganyan organized events and made art as a co-founding member of the Radek Group. Ter Oganyan's art consists of drawing, painting, objects, video, photography, digital art, performative actions. It is founded in the counter-culture situation where art creates agency and vice versa. 

David Ter-Oganyan has been presented in solo shows in Museum of contemporary art MUMOK (Vienna), Multimedia Art Museum (Moscow), XL-gallery (Moscow), Prometeogallery (Milan), Guelman Gallery (Moscow) and DiehlCUBE (Berlin). His work has also been on display at New Museum (New York), Warsaw Museum of Contemporary Art, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Manifesta 4 (Frankfurt), 10th Istanbul Biennale, Moscow Biennale (2005 ) and Turin Triennal (2005).
