Andrei Sharov’s paintings are full of expressive energy and emotion, transforming classical motifs – such as the nude female subject of Ingres’ Grande Odalisque – into bursts of color and saturated, skittish brush strokes in distinct opposition to the work it references, which is marked by a smooth, clean painterly classicism. This rearticulation conveys not only Sharov’s mood and temperament towards his subject matter, but also the overall state of our contemporary culture, defined as it is by intense energy and its fast-paced nature.
Made with and for Andrei Sharov, and Stars Bridge Agency.Completed in 2012
The catalogue was exclusively designed for Sharov’s solo show at Art Basel 2012 in Miami. Matching the event, artist’s works were beautifully embraced in a gorgeous looking book printed in two languages, English and Russian. Golden foil embossing on the cover and pages printed with golden Pantone introduced artist’s celebrity world in its kitschy glory that emanates excessive luxury in Russian style.
Together with client, we designed and delivered the catalogue that would match the significance of the event, and beautifully embrace artists works in order to create the greatest first impression.
