LATIF KAZBEKOV. WATERCOLOR.
07 August - 15 September 2014
The exhibition presents works of Latif Kazbekov - famous contemporary artist from St. Petersburg. Among objects on display are watercolors and graphic works in the author's mixed media, performed by Kazbekov in different years.
Works of Latif Kazbekov combine grotesque sharpness with lyricism and special
precision of performance which approaches photographic technique with poetic
synthesis and increased conventionality, sometimes resulting in pure
abstraction. The artist also organically integrates in his graphic works animalistic
and anthropomorphic motifs, fiction and real life observation, subtlety of
coloristic solutions and excessive tension of forms. Each piece of Kazbekov's
art demonstrates high culture of performance, obtained during the years of studying
at the graphic art department in Leningrad Academy of Arts and augmented by
creative experiments in the manner of the leading masters of the twentieth-century
With the support of the "Free Artists of St.Petersburg" project
