In 2001 he graduated from the Moscow State University of Printing Arts, the department of graphic arts. Kuzkin started participating in exhibitions since 2006.
For the first time Kuzkin draw attention of critics and curators in 2008 in the art-camp “Veretevo” during the Youth Biennale “Stop! Who Goes There?”, where he demonstrated several works at a time, including installation “Place, Where No One Disturbs” and performance “Circle-wise”, which became a sensation.
For several hours Kuzkin walked in a circle of a pool filled with liquid concrete being roped to a stick in the centre. The performance lasted till the artist could no longer knead the concrete which started to solidify. Kuzkin himself described the performance as an act of solidarity with people, who are forced to carry on their shoulders the hardness of everyday life so unbearably difficult in his country. Using the video documentation of the performance the artist produced a film, which was later used by the Russian and European curators for various exhibition projects. Kuzkin was already guest of NORDWIND 2015 within the frame of the project BALAGAN!!! in Berlin and Hamburg.
