Spring is almost in the air and Art Events are popping up all over NYC this month of March and in April. My first event of the season was the Russian Pavilion going on at One Art Space in Tribeca. This show featured Eastern European Artists primarily from Russian. They included Grandmasters like Chemiakin Mihail whose works evoke metaphysical Picasso like abstracts and up and coming Artist Olga Minnibaeva, I especially liked her painting of the Turtle with the ancient world on its proverbial shoulders. My others favorites included Artem Mirolecich pieces which reminded me of the Sci-Fi Animated classic Fantastic Planet with their “techno-organic cities”, the Lenticular works of Valery Yershov and Ernst Neizvestny’s sculpture of a Human-Griffin like creature grasping an Eagle in one hand, an Ax in the other while carrying a Baby papoose style across it’s chest was pretty powerful.
One Art Space is located at 23 Warren Street
