EXANTRES 22º — 22º
From March 11 to March 14, Booroom Gallery hosted a personal exhibition of the artist Exantres 22° - 22°.
22° is the degree of south and north latitude where the sunniest and warmest places in the world are located: South America, the Caribbean, Thailand, Polynesia and Indonesia. The works of Exantres show an interpretation and embodiment of eternal summer, dreams of distant lands, inner feelings and experiences caused by this subject.
“Winters in Moscow are too long and monochrome, so the project 22° - 22° appeared as the answer to my longing for warmth and sunlight. I am sure that when surrounded by beauty and rich colors, a person becomes stronger and happier. The images of dark-skinned girls, the colorful combination of various materials, prints, and nature became the source of my inspiration, where in each work the heroine is presented as an absolutely collective image”, the artist admits.
