One can sense Frank DiPietro and Claire Sayers’ fascination with nature. Frank’s works are full of symbolism and hidden meaning. Water and flowers are his favorite subject matter. Every painting is a little story – it may be the journey of a waterlily or a fairy tale about ever-changing water reflections.

Claire Sayers is truly generous with her color palette. She sees nature infused with joy and vigor. Her chartreuse and silver birch trees, emerald and magenta elms entice you to join them in their eternal circle dance, spinning around you, lifting you off the ground…

Every feature, every shape on her canvas reflects vitality and celebrates life.

12/09/2021 - 12/29/2021

Please join us at East West Fine Art for a night of celebrations and Russian fortune telling. Immerse yourself in the magical world of Michael Cheval’s art, while discovering what the future year will bring. Reception Dec. 9, 6:00-8:00pm

Michael Cheval’s artwork will set the tone for our enchanted evening. Cheval is one of the most striking surrealists and absurdists of our time. Not only are the paintings populated with mythical characters, but a magic soaks every inch of canvas. Cheval’s artwork conjures visions of supernatural spheres, doorways into parallel realities, secrets revealed….

We are celebrating during December, because winter in Russia is the most magical and joyful time, full of hopes and expectations. The ancient belief goes that unearthly powers and spirits become available for contact during this time. Ancestors used this opportunity to foretell the future by interpreting secret signs. Now mostly played for fun, these rituals and games, led by our Fortune Teller Regina will entice and amaze our guests.

“Frozen Moments” exhibit of gravity-defying resin-glass sculptures by the ever inventive Annalu

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5130

01/03/2022 - 01/17/2022

Fresh, changeable and direct, Annalu’s art knows how to touch the spectator’s inner chords provoking the deepest sensations and recalling ancestral emotions.

The major focus of her works is on the theme of water, primeval central element of life. Water is the origin of all things: everything is made of water and everything returns to water.

In the works of the Artist there is a sense of metamorphosis, in pas­sing, of evolution as a sort of journey between different states, between different realities, a spirit of inquiry that shares some typical aspects of the science of alchemy.

Annalu is capable of assembling in­congruent elements such as resins and paper, bark and fiberglass, bi­tumen and sand, cement and roots, to create new realities, suspended worlds where alchemy is lightness.

Georgy and Zina met in their teenage years and since that time never parted. This beautiful love story has lasted for over a quarter of a century. Unusually beautiful Zina is not only Georgy’s muse, but a dream-model. He paints only Zina, he is inspired only by her, he dedicates to her his mortal existence and his immortal art.

“People were asking for more contemporary art in 2005 and I had to find a new approach, something unique,” Victor Colesnicenco said. It was in a dream that he was inspired to create mixed media and collage cityscapes. He had been doing some traveling to New York, Chicago and other cities so those trips provided the direction for this urban art. The paintings sold right away. He describes it as “an energy boost.” Dealers from the UK started to work with him as well. Sold-out shows followed. “I’ve got a very good imagination,” he said. “Future paintings are in my head.” For this naturally gifted artist who didn’t like the more traditional and conservative approach to art instruction, he says he can now fly like a bird and be free. -Spotlight Magazine, Kathy O’Flynn
