"Cosmoscow" Art Fair 2017
Askeri Gallery booth
This autumn Askeri Gallery takes part in Cosmoscow International Art Fair.
From 8th till 10th of September we are going to show you two very different international artists in Gostiny Dvor. Both western and eastern art tendencies will come together, represented by famous abstract painter Conor Mccreedy and unconventional sculpture Jae Yong Kim from South Korea.
Conor Mccreedy was born in Johannesburg (South Africa) in 1987. He is famous for his textured monochrome large-scale works. The artist branded his blue color as Mccreedyblue. Mccreedy explores the creative gesture, the connection between his own emotions and visual material, in an effort to overcome visual barriers. The creativity of Mccreedy was influenced by the legendary "master of blue" Yves Klein, Willem de Kooning, Gerhard Richter and Pablo Picasso. The artist is also inspired by vibrant nature of South Africa, where he came from.
