Good news for fans of Andriy Halashyn's iconographic, darkly humorous pop-art paintings. The Ukrainian-born artist, now residing in Costa Rica, has been invited to showcase his work at NordArt, a very exclusive fair that selects only a tiny slice of applicants to participate. The event is held annually in the German town of Büseldorf, in a spacious former iron foundry. Here's some of what the organizers have to say regarding the event:
Since 1999 the NordArt has established itself as one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe which takes place anually in the summer months. The NordArt is an overall work of art in its own right and is designed as such each year. More than 200 international artists, selected by a jury, present a comprehensive panorama of contemporary art. Each individual work not only speaks for itself but also creates new perspectives when seen juxtaposed against the unique backdrop offered by the Carlshütte and the adjacent historical sculpture park.
We here at Etra Fine Art couldn't be happier for Halashyn and this wonderful acknowledgement he's receiving. If you have the good fortune to be near Büseldorf, you would do well to check out this progressive fair and the monumental paintings Halashyn will have on display therein. The exhibition runs from June 4th to October 9th.
