Selections from the WAR & FASHION series
April 5 – 30, 2012
Artist reception April 5 from 6 – 9 pm
saltfineart is proud to present selections from the WAR & FASHION series highlighting the seminal project in the rising career of Costa Rican painter Andriy Halashyn. With a biting sense of wit, striking color choices and classical rendering ability turned on its ear, these paintings are as stunning in their beauty as they are in the meaning behind them.
The exhibition will be comprised of 5 works from the series including an exclusive commissioned work that has never before been exhibited.
Ukrainian born, but living and working in Costa Rica for the past 10 years, Halashyn brings a cosmopolitan touch to his lushly dystopian paintings. In addition to winning awards in the Ukraine and Costa Rica, Halashyn has had numerous solo and collective exhibitions around the world in Los Angeles, Miami, Switzerland, the Ukraine, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Panama.
His work has been presented in major auction houses such as Philip De Pury and art fairs around the globe. In the last year alone, he has exhibited at the Los Angeles Art Show (Los Angeles), Arte Americas (Miami), Red Dot Art Fair (Miami), Arteahora Art Fair (Chicago) and the Hot Art Fair (Switzerland).
