Lugano: Current

Estopia Art Gallery is pleased to invite you, on September 12th, 2019, at 6.00 PM, at the opening of its new gallery venue at Palazzo Elvezia, Corso Elvezia 9/a in Lugano. The inaugural exhibition, Fractured Realities II, will showcase Andrada Feșnic, one of the most promising young Romanian artists, with an impressive start and a highly original technique, based on figurative decomposition and cut-outs and a spectacular collage effect obtained by exclusively painterly means.

Past

Estopia Art Gallery is pleased to inaugurate on Tuesday, June 25th, at 7.00 PM, the exhibition Hybrid Playground, by Edith Torony.

At the crossroads between abstract and figurative, the show, which features a selection of the last three series of works made between 2017 and 2019, undertakes a journey in the bizarre universe of urban periphery, in the attempt to allegorically recompose the devastating effects of junk invasion and consumerism on our living space.

Sergiu Laslo, Lighting Grey

May 24th – June 15th, 2019

Opening: Friday, May 29th, 2019, 7.00 PM

On Friday, May 24th, 2019, from 7.00 PM, Estopia Art Gallery is pleased to inaugurate the exhibition Lighting Grey by Sergiu Laslo.

Trained at the neo-figurative art school in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, the young artist aims to carry out, in his first solo show, a highly original exercise of introspection in grey: a gallery of bizarre portraits unfolds under the eyes of the viewer, almost all (apparently) in monochrome strokes. The new series of works by Sergiu Laslo opens an ironic-absurd slit towards an anti-metaphysical world, featuring solitary protagonists, most of them captured in unusual and strange postures, with their faces half covered or even completely absent.
Afis Reka

Madár Réka, Dissection

April 23rd – May 17th, 2019, Estopia Art Gallery

Opening: April 23rd, 2019, 7.00 PM

From April 23rd to May 17th, 2019, Estopia Art Gallery presents the exhibition Dissection, by Madár Réka. A show, which brings forth a true cut in Réka’s personal biography and artistic path. The new Dissection series reveals a new approach and even a new identity for Madár Réka, known until now as Ugron Réka.

A personal experience of breaking with her own past has turned, in the last one year and a half, into a powerful shift in her art, too. If in the last 5 years Réka has made herself known in the field of figurative painting, with a unique visual mark inspired by surrealist and hyperrealist art, with echoes from pop art, the artist is currently moving, in this new surprising series, towards abstract art.

Andrea Tivadar, Abstract Fluidity

March 21st – April 18th, 2019, Estopia Art Gallery

Opening: Thursday, March 21st, 2019, 7.00 PM

Estopia Art Gallery presents the exhibition Abstract Fluidity, by Andrea Tivadar: an event which aims to bring forth the project initiated by the newest gallery in Bucharest and focused on showcasing the most experimental and innovative young artists in Romania.

While replacing figurative approach with a form of “synthetized creation” and abstraction of reality, the young Romanian artist who comes from Satu-Mare and is currently undertaking her PhD at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, is convinced that “art is the sincerest expression of real life”. But what we see in her works is not at all “reality” in the conventional sense: on the contrary, in a fascinating play of forms and volumes, Andrea Tivadar seems to recover on her canvases an essentialized reinterpretation of an imagined or (re)invented reality of her own.

Marina Aristotel Exhibition

Marina Aristotel, AASAMBLAJ

February 21st – March 15th, 2019

Estopia is pleased to announce the second exhibition on the agenda of its project focused on showcasing the most innovative Romanian young artists: on Thursday, February 21st, 2019, at 6.00 PM, Estopia presents the show AASAMBLAJ by Marina Aristotel.

With a BA and MA in Painting earned from the Bucharest University of Arts, Marina Aristotel has shaped herself a distinct profile among the young Romanian abstracts, by choosing to work with a media that has become in the past few years her dominant visual mark: resin. Her new series, AASAMBLAJ, presented by Estopia Art Gallery, brings forth a surprising change in the artist’s path.

Andrada Fresnic Exhibition

Andrada Fesnic, Fractured Realities

January 17th – February 15th, 2019

A new year, a new contemporary art gallery in Bucharest: on Thursday, January 17th, 2019, at 6.00 PM, Estopia Art Gallery announces the inauguration of its venue on 5 Bocșa Street, with the opening of Andrada Feșnic’s exhibition Fractured Realities. The show brings to the forefront the most recent series of works by Andrada Feșnic, for whom painting is a true experimental field where overlapping layers, the collage effect obtained in a pictorial approach and the carefully orchestrated decomposition of figurative elements define an artistic profile visually marked by the School of Cluj, where the artist comes from, doubled by a highly innovative personal direction.
