Mike Dargas in London

Opera Gallery is delighted to introduce Mike Dargas to the London contemporary art scene.

Mike Dargas’ new series of portraits is a challenge to oil painting as we know it and a confirmation of his mastery of the photorealistic techniques. 

The German artist’s love for precision, in an almost obsessive manner, brings models to life under the brush stroke and draws one into a dreamlike world where time has suspended. His breath-taking large-scale portraits – all striking with their liveliness and expressionism – will transport the public into a world of intimacy and sensuality; and the lingering images of his paintings will stay with them well after they have viewed the exhibition. 

 Exhibition details:
MIKE DARGAS, Solo exhibition
Dates: 6 – 20 July, 2016
Address: Opera Gallery,134 New Bond Street, W1S 2TF London
Operning hours: Monday to Saturday 10.00 AM - 7.00 PM; Sunday 12.00-5.00 PM

Opera Gallery presents “Italian Contemporary Art” in Singapore

 

Opera Gallery Singapore presents “Italian Contemporary Art” in June 2016 . 

Deeply rooted in the pages of Art History – from the Mosaics of the Ostrogoths to the Spatialist canvases of Fontana – Italian art has greatly influenced the European and world art scenes. Nowadays, Italy produces some of the most original and visionary artists, three of which Opera Gallery is proud to present with ‘Italian Contemporary Art’.

Exploring different styles and mediums in the contemporary Italian art scene, ‘Italian Contemporary Art’ will showcase works by Marcello Lo Giudice, Umberto Mariani and Gianfranco Meggiato. Visually stimulating and intellectually sophisticated, these artists manipulate the surface of their works, exploring the influence of light and shadow on monochromatic surfaces and experimenting with the void rather than the surface. The resulting works are evocative of a classic tradition seeped in contemporary meaning.

Impulse by Lita Cabellut

 

Opera Gallery is excited to present IMPULSE, the newest series by veteran artist Lita Cabellut  to be exhibited in London in conjunction with Frieze Art Fair 2015.

In this series, Lita Cabellut deconstructs traditional concepts associated with beauty and its relationship to violence; and examines our inherent impulse towards these two kindred sensations and the clash between society’s banishment and expectation of the beautiful.

The concept of beauty is a burdened one. We are living in a society that fears its adoration in contemporary art, yet intimidates its women into accepting it as their highest value. We have degraded it in mass media and the celebrity yet revere it above all other qualities of life. Beauty is a double-edged sword – an instrument of seduction and inaccessibility burdened with an overwhelming distrust in the simple sensation of pleasure.

With these dichotomies in mind, Opera Gallery is excited to present Impulse, the newest series by veteran artist Lita Cabellut to be exhibited in conjunction with Frieze Art Fair 2015. By deconstructing traditional concepts associated with beauty and its relationship to violence, Cabellut examines our inherent impulse towards these two kindred sensations and the clash between society’s banishment and expectation of the beautiful.

ABOUT LITA CABELLUT

Born in 1961 to a Gipsy family in Barcelona, Lita Cabellut is a prolific contemporary portraitist. Inspired by the ubiquitous fresco paintings in her hometown, Cabellut spent four years in classical training and held her first exhibition at the Town Hall of Masnou, Barcelona at the age of seventeen. At 19 she left her native Spain to study at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, Netherlands, which is where she remains today to live and work. Over the years, Cabellut has developed a unique technique that yields an inimitable quality and texture to her work. Her paintings have been exhibited in numerous museums worldwide, including the Netherlands Manifesta Maastricht; Seoul Arts Center; Contemporary Art Museum in Sicily and CSMVS Mumbai, among many others.
