Andrey Bartenev is a Russian artist, sculptor, experimentalist, and creator of many provocative, interactive installations and performances. He was born in 1969 in Norilsk, Russia.

Examples are his papier-mâché "eight-legged dog for high-speed transportation;" his performance “Black Caviar Road” – a line of Russians black caviar cans with car tires rolling by; and his sound installation "Say: I love you" which uses a computer to transform those three words into an echo bouncing through two hundred speakers.
