I went to the Saatchi gallery a couple of days ago and found some beautiful art, like these from Valery Koshlyakov. It’s tempera on cardboard boxes. The boxes make the picture pop out like 3D which I found really cool.
They also had an exhibition with Moscow art called Breaking the Ice, which I really liked and found some artists that I haven’t heard of before.
Oskar Rabin (similar to Soutine, I think, but with darker colours)
I found some of the art highly influenced by Andy Warhol, like these two below
Post art by Vitaly Komar & Alexander Melamid (1973)
Gorby by Alexander Kosolapov
I went to an exhibition at the Met in New York last autumn called Regarding Warhol. It included lots of Warhol’s art but also art from several other artists that he influenced.
Like Warhol’s Marilyn paintings influenced several other artists to make celebrity portraits.
Turquoise Marilyn by Warhol (1964)
Kate Moss by Banksy (2005)
Michelle O by Mickalene Thomas (2008)
Malcolm X by Glenn Ligon (2001)
and the Met could have included the one from Alexander Kosolapov of Gorbachev as well
The rusty Campbell soup painting by Vitaly Komar & Alexander Melamid could also have been included in the exhibition as it is clearly influenced by Warhol
The Gluckskliee installation by Thomas Bayrle (1969) and the Tesco Value soup by Banksy (2004) were both included at the Met exhibition
I enjoyed both the art from Koshlyakov on cardboard boxes and the Moscow art exhibition and would highly recommend going to the Saatchi gallery to check them out!
