Along with Ilya Kabakov and Erik Bulatov, he was one of the leading artists of the Moscow Conceptualist artistic movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Pivovarov was also a prolific illustrator of children's books, with over 50 books to his credit. He moved from Moscow to Prague in 1982, and continues to live there to date. Viktor Pivovarov connects paintings with stories, very often with expressive autobiografic elements. He creates imaginary surrealistic world – empty spaces with groping figures – made by memories of concrete reality.
