Exhibition theme: ABSTRACT REALITY


We offer you to abstract and dive into a world of vivid experiences and new emotions. We offer you to experience the beauty and musicality of abstract art. According its founders it’s the only one is able to create a universal picture of the world order. We invite you become the innovators of the XXI century and express your conception of art, as brave as it was in the twentieth century when the first avant-garde artists established new vision in arts ( Kazimir Malevich, Vassily Kandinsky and Mikhail Larionov). Their art opened a new epoch in culture –establishing in our everyday life, finding expression in architecture, fashion, design and modern ideas of urbanism.

Evidently it’s free art not obeying any dogma and rules. It managed to serve its dynamism, energy, life, but achieved a certain elitarist status. Ability to rise above the ordinary level of consciousness, to penetrate the artist's intention, expressed by non-objective painting is a challenge not for a crowd, but the special persons – the most sensitive and internally ready for this experience.

Our dive will take place in several levels: 2d works (painting), 3d objects (fashion design) and be called the "fourth dimension" - installations with their movement, the ambiguity of the interpretation and message…
