Letter of cosmic Exploration – Alexander Grahovsky (28-30.09)
Grahovsky’s portraits of people chewing gum are paintings of people who look without looking. They could spend their whole lives crouched behind their glasses, absorbed in the ritual of their gum chewing, as if time has stopped. And chewing gum is a figure of spleen. Everything is in the chewing gum. The bodies are only it’s extension. Outside there is nothing.
Spanish figurative oil painter. Born in Alicante, he is based in Madrid since 2007. He has studied with Luisa Pallarés, Nathaniel Evans and Eloy Morales. Since his first show in Escalera de Incendios to this one, his work has changed from being entirely digital to traditional oil painting, focusing on portrait. Since 2012 his work has been exhibited in Madrid, Alicante, Barcelona and London.
