25.01 - 22.02.2018
ANTON POPERNYAK is a native of Luhansk, and a graduate of the Kyiv National Academy of Fine Art and Architecture, Anton's canvases bring a contemporary edge to the Old Masters.
Originating in the 17th century under Hetman Ivan Mazepa, UKRAINIAN BAROQUE was an artistic style that fused West-European baroque architectural forms and Ukrainian national traditions. Anton Popernyak's opulent canvases reinvent classical forms and subjects for a modern audience.
FACES/// is a series of minimalist contemporary pieces that explore the feminine ideal in the age of mass advertising. Glamorous and expressive, the artworks allude to science fiction and the fashion industry alike.
