Fine art, sculpture & photography in the heart of Kyiv since 1988
UKRAINIAN POP ART
Sergey Marunich (b. 1993) is a young Ukrainian artist, designer, illustrator and brand builder from Ternopil, Western Ukraine, better known as S.M.ART (Sergey Marunych Art). His first personal exhibition DOLCE VITA introduces the world to Richi, a character from a hyperrealist world of luxury and freedom, whose element is an endless river of ‘green’. According to the artist, ‘Richi’ lives in every one of us. He is the symbol of our unlimited potential, an archetype of success and our absolute fulfilment in all areas of life.
Drawing from his extensive experience in luxury branding, having studied the biographies of over 500 successful people all over the world, Sergey Marunych says: ‘Ukrainian society has quite a negative attitude towards money, which stems from our current situation… I personally prefer the Western approach, where people who contribute something significant to society – like light bulb inventor Edison or Facebook mastermind Zuckerberg – reap a considerable reward!’
The exhibition runs 8 - 14 August 2017.
Open daily, 11.00 - 19.00.
