When all is said and done, the weather and love are the two elements about which one can never be sure. Alice Hoffman
Welcome to February at Pure Gallery. It might be cold outside but our artists speak the language of love and romance. This month, we’ll explore some Art of the Tango. Did you know that Tango music is as old as Jazz? Ah, the things you learn in an art gallery.
Art Angles: The art of Andrei; fun, colorful and contemporary. Andrei, born and educated in Russia, emigrated to the United States and was immediately captivated by our social scene. Here, he depicts the Tango in his sexy yet fanciful way. ‘Tango Romance’ from a limited edition of 195 on textured canvas
< Here are two images from Fabian Perez also depicting the Tango But with a very different style. Fabian, hailed as one of the young masters of the contemporary art scene, likes to paint with acrylic because it dries quickly so he can follow his impulses. He feels he paints with his emotions. His bold and symbolic imagery feels intensely passionate.
< ‘Tango IV’ limited edition on canvas
‘Tango VI’ limited edition on canvas >
Fabian was born on November 2, 1967 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He left Argentina when he was 22 to live in Italy for 7 years. This is where he honed his painting style and took time to write ‘Reflections of a Dream’, published later in the US. He has since lived in Los Angeles.
