Vienna tuning fork. Watercolor, paper. 2015
14 september 2016—15 november 2016
Russian Museum invites to the personal exhibition of painter and graphic artist Andrey Esionov. That is his first exhibition in St Petersburg, but there already were several exhibitions in Europe and in Moscow – at the Academy of Arts and Moscow Museum of Modern Art. Andrey Esionov is working at the intersection of academic and contemporary art but his works formally exist outside the artistic establishment and nowadays system of Russian art-market. He was born in Tashkent in 1963. At 1990 he graduated from the Department of Paintings of the Tashkent State Theater and Artistic Institute (named after A.N. Ostrovsky) (The Uzbekistan State Institute of Arts and Culture). He didn’t want to perform official orders and follow artistic conjuncture of that time that’s why he wasn’t engaged in painting at the period of 1990-2010. After 20 years of uncreative period he had promptly rushed in the art world and exhibition sphere of Moscow and his works quickly became popular with the viewers and gained evaluation of the experts. The exhibition will include watercolors and sketches of Andrey Esionov. His works are notable for spontaneity and at the same time are very narrative and reflective, while the traditional technique is comprehended as contemporary “media”. Works of Andrey Esionov are noted by awards of Russian Academy of Arts, Moscow Union of Artists and also several prestigious international festivals of art.
