He was born in Moscow, as a child lived in a communal apartment, memories of which, by his own admission, became chief in his work: "My aesthetics - from the nostalgia for a communal". In 1960 he, like many in the informal arts, worked in the book graphics. In 1972 he emigrated to Israel a year later moved to London. In 1983, Cooper became a British citizen. But his travels were not over. He now lives in France, then in London, then in New York. Often coming to Russia.

«a visiting card of" Cooper's original paintings are installed with prosaic objects such as brushes, spoons, forks, apples, flowers, boxes from the cookies and so on. The colors the artist prefers the muffled, melancholic, at his pictures everyday objects of little interest seems frozen in a kind of timelessness. In his works, he extols the beauty of the old, the poor things: "From many years of human touch all objects become precious, they do not even need beeswax!" Tracks Cooper is very noble - no wonder they enjoyed considerable success with collectors.

In addition to painting, Cooper creates more and sculptures, book illustrations and jewelry, as well as costumes and scenery for theatrical productions. Abroad, the artist designed the performances of such directors as Robert Altman (Robert Altman) and Marcel Marechal (Marcel Maréchal).

His intimate, very decorative works were exhibited in museums and galleries around the world (on account of the painter more than 50 solo exhibitions). In 1995, the Pushkin Museum im. Pushkin spent his retrospective.

And the auction of his work is sometimes possible to buy more profitable than in the galleries. Gallery-price range for new works of medium and large size - it is conditionally 10-30 thousand euros. The auction record for the artist's career - 18,5 thousand pounds for polutorametrovy beautiful "Tulip" (2007), paid at Phillips de Pury in the summer of 2008. Chic work. Collectors also like its compact "flat installation" - objects (flowers, spoons, forks, brushes), mounted on canvas and immersed in the spectacular pasty colorful volume.
