Exhibiting @TheOtherArtFair

It is very nice when somebody comes to your exhibition. It is particularly nice when the interest is shown by the younger generation of viewers. They are not corrupted by the conventions of ‘good taste’ or art history and spontaneously express their excitement or curiosity when seeing a work of art. At the Other Art…

Birthday @The_Globe

First of all, thank you all for your wonderful birthday wishes, it is all very much appreciated. It was equally a delight to watch the Shakespeare’s Globe perform under the stars in the Oxford Bodleian Library quad, in the same way it was done in 1600s. Simply fabulous. The best birthday present one could wish…

Andre Derain @CentrePompidou

The East and West of Fauvism

Two great masters of the twentieth century: Henri Matisse and Martiros Sarian, are probably the most outstanding colourists I know. They do not just use, apply or combine colour, they breath it and live it. The effect of such a passion – exquisite joy of the viewer and pleasure of the senses. The two painters led very different…
