ABSTRACT SPRAYPAINTING @ MONTANA GALLERY by ALEX KUZNETSOV
Opening the 7th of february 2013 from 20.00. Running from the 8th February until 9th of march 2013 @ Montana Gallery Barcelona, this is something worth checking out if you are around.
Along the road of his artistic travels he has used many different names: Iks, Temos, Monk, Awek, Ners and Liquid. He has presented his lettering on stickers, stencils and murals in many different cities around Europe, different countries of ex Soviet Union and Asia. Within this personal development looking for the right road to walk down, he also has been truly active in discussions and conversations with other artists around the subject of new styles and forms of communication.
It was back in 2010 when he more definitely moved from the world of graffiti and “style writing” to create more art on canvas with its abstract features.
He had his first experiences of making murals in Hong Kong, and more profoundly, through his canvas work in studio. This is where he discovered how to transmit true passion and emotion through color, with his lines and movements loaded of expressivity on superimposed layers.
It just happened one day, without any warning, and until today he maintains to transmit these vibrations from within himself.
He is an artist that keeps surprising himself with all that occurs and surrounds him in the world we live in, and he shares this with us through his spray painted canvases. An artist who believes that the figurative art is not the only way to establish dialog between artist and spectator, and he moves away from all types of borders and limitations of conception to let the colors be the true transmitters of all these emotions. Heart to heart.
