Arthur Kulkov, born August 20, 1983, in Siberia, Russian Federation, is a Russian model.
Kulkov immigrated from Russia arriving in New York. He attended St. Francis College in Brooklyn, New York and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing. He got scouted by someone in the industry while playing soccer, his favorite pastime during his college years. After several times saying he wasn’t interested to the scout, he eventually went along to meet some people and started his modelling career.
While most models struggle getting exposure in print work at the begging of their careers, Kulkov struck big success working for brands such as “Barneys New York,” “Original Penguin,” “Sisley” and “Russell & Bromley” during the Fall 2008 season, his first ever and he has not even made his runway debut.
In 2011, Kulkov set himself as a top model by becoming the face of “Dolce & Gabbana” for several seasons in a row, as well as becoming a permanent fixture for “Tommy Hilfiger”.
Kulkov’s work has been prominently featured in publications like “American GQ” and “Details” magazine. He is recognized for being one of the few successful Russian models working internationally and for nabbing at least one fashion campaign every season he’s been an active model.
