Vasily Sad (b. 1948, Odessa, Ukraine) is a key exponent of Ukrainian abstract movement. Sad belongs to so-called Avant-Garde of the ‘second wave’ in the 1960s-1980s, non-official art which co-existed with Socialist Realism.
Sad began his career as impressionist artist but later moved to pure abstraction believing that it is only through abstraction one can get to the secrets of human existence and nature. Artist works on canvases multi-layering paint as if embroidery or lacework. He uses metal sheets in his work as representation of money, power, pain but also perseverance and human iron strength to move forward no matter what.
Eduard Belsky (b.1963, Ukraine, Slovenia) is one of the most renowned and established contemporary Ukrainian artists. His paintings have great influence of the French School. Women have prominent aspect in his paintings; they are enigmatic, thoughtful and beautiful, almost like Icons of Madonna. His landscapes are vibrant splash of colours, dynamism and energy. The artist reflects on duality of things in the world: two faces in one, two figures or two faces.
Both artists are internationally recognised and works are in numerous art museums and private collections.
The exhibition of Eduard Belsky and Vasily Sad organised by Liliya Tippetts of ArteLia Gallery and Consultancy in partnership with Vivanova club takes place until 12 February 2016 at Société Générale Private Banking (Monaco)
