Until October 1st, the contemporary art gallery Espinasse31 is hosting a unique exhibition by the Polish artist Tomasz Kucharski at the Méridien Beach Plaza Hotel in Monte-Carlo. It is an opportunity to discover his work, much of which is based on abstract portraits.
Both engineer and painter, Tomasz Kucharski lives near Warsaw. What he likes to produce are portraits, often abstract, in which he infuses a basis of reality or vice versa: realistic portraits, where he slips in touches of irony from his imagination as in the series The Officers where he displays his particular interest in the world of the army and its codification. The series, however, is comprised of portraits of officers that do not really exist... His paintings are often in oil or acrylic, on to which he adds collages, photographs, and various other techniques to give them a specific appeal and energy.
A highlight in Monaco
Until now, his work was fairly under the radar in Monte Carlo. But his renown is evolving, thanks to the exhibition that is currently dedicated to him through the contemporary gallery (and residence for artists) Espinasse31.The organization has a habit of moving exhibitions into prestigious places like last summer when it was at the Miami Beach of Monte-Carlo, and this winter at the Hotel Delano. For Tomasz Kucharski, it is at the Méridien Beach Plaza Hotel that one can discover his works, until October 1st.
