Vasily's solo exhibition called 'In Dante Veritas' was a huge success both at the State Russian Museum (St. Petersburg) and the sculptural park, ‘LA Collection’Air’ in Lucerne (Switzerland). An expanded multi-media version of 'In Dante Veritas', comprising more than a hundred inter-related art objects, is exhibited at the 2019 Venice Biennale where it is extremely popular with attendees. Vasily is also known for creating inspiring concepts for unusual buildings, published in his book Designing Legends. In addition, he has written a science-fiction novel called ‘Collective Mind’ published in Russia and now available in English.
Vasily Klyukin is a famous defender of the environment, working on promoting the fight against environmental pollution every chance he gets. Inevitably, environmental themes are predominant in his art. He is also known for his support of amfAR, the Leonardo di Caprio Foundation and Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
