Ion Tuculescu - Expressionist Painting & Abstract Art


Ion Tuculescu (1910 – 1962) was a Romanian expressionist and abstract oil painter, although professionally he worked as a biologist and physician. His artwork became well-known posthumously, when, in the spring of 1965, a major retrospective exhibition revealed him as one of the important post-World War II European modern artists.
In his early years, Ţuculescu's work was marked by the influence of figurative Expressionism, gathering themes and subjects from Romanian folklore. He did not abandon their influence as he moved toward abstract expressionism, making use of decorative elements originating in the folk art of his native region, Oltenia.

Leonid Sokov - Nonconformism


Leonid Sokov  (1941 – 2018 ) was a Russian nonconformist artist and sculptor. He primarily lived and worked in New York City.
Sokov was born in Mikhalevo in the Tver region, Russia in 1941 and graduated from the Stroganov Institute now called the Moscow School of Art and Industry, in 1969. He emigrated to the United States in 1980. "Leonid Sokov is seen as one of the most brilliant representatives of Sots Art. Sokov uses Soviet symbols in combination with the traditions of popular folklore, creating objects coarsely carved out of wood or wrought from metal, which look similar to wooden toys. The work is often cracked or chipped, the wooden pieces fit together poorly and are painted coarsely, giving it the rough image of a handmade item. The artist often uses combinations of popular myths and forms from the East and West, like portraits of Stalin with Marilyn Monroe, the image of the hammer and sickle turning into a dollar sign, or a “Marching” Giacometti across from a bronze Lenin, in his work. This ironic view allows Sokov not only to lower the levels of aggression in the usual collection of Soviet symbols, but also to try and find their similarities with their antitheses: the symbols of western pop-art."(saatchigallery.com)
In 2001 he represented Russia at the Venice Biennale. He participated in the 2004 Gwangju Biennale in Gwangju, South Korea.
In 2012, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art  honored the artist's 70th birthday with a major retrospective and publication on the artist's career and work



















Alex Romano


"Born in Italy Rome, Alex Romano began his career as a child, when his 7 years he received the 1st Prize for Children's Painting and participated in V International Exhibition of Children's Painting organized under the patronage of the Province of Rome in the famous Via Margutta, the most emblematic street in the heart of ancient Rome, chosen by artists from around the world goal. After finishing his studies, and with a desire to further expand his artistic horizons, Alex Romano traveled through Europe and Latin America soaking up all the cultural expressions of these countries before returning to his hometown and further training in artistic attending various courses conducted by the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Roma.
During his studies of bachelor in USA and Spain and later during college, Alex Romano used his free time to feed his artistic quest and fascinated by the force of the matter, he became interested in recycling. Alex Romano began, then, not only to use found materials as support for his works, but also to incorporate them into them, creating different textures and forms and developing not only a material recycling, but also a conceptual recycling, giving the waste a second opportunity.
His admiration for Informalism that developed in France and in the rest of Europe after the Second World War, and by the American Abstract Expressionism as by the artists Alberto Burri, Antoni Tapies, Georges Mathieu, Gorky, Willem de Kooning, Jean Paul Riopelle, Pollock or Stanislaus Rapotec have determined a great artistic influence in his work without taking an ounce of originality from his pictorial personality. Alex Romno translates reality into images of suggestive strength that invite a fantastic itinerary through undefined spaces, discontinuous lines, abstract forms, full of colors and some grotesque elements."
