Evsti Bomse "Electric dreams"
The exhibition presents Evsti for the first time apart from his team, in the format of a personal project. The exhibition does not presuppose a general outline or artistic task, but outlines an area of interests and contexts, presents the author's style of writing and the general satirical tone of the subjects. It will feature new paintings and graphic works created over the past year.

Figuratively speaking, Evsti plays on two different fields at the same time, creating high, low art. On the one hand, its setting and style are obviously shaped by personal art, as well as cinema, video games and animation. Hence the American houses in the suburbs, and teenagers from the 90s, and characters who seem to have stepped out of billboards or old films.

However, some subjects, like the Ship of Fools, unexpected timeless heroes, and especially the edifying author's intonation contextually connect the artist with classical Western European art. It is interesting how his multi-dimensional planar panoramas unfold in unison with the masterpieces of Dutch painting of the 15th-16th centuries.

What also connects him with the Dutch is that the author appears as a voice of justice, in addition to the vices listed in the Middle Ages, exposing modern human sins. Its subjects include consumerism, colonialism, social inequality, cultural appropriation, etc. The artist is the creator of the truth, which is not told in truth, all the more quickly under the rays of the sun and before the eyes of the audience, turning into a historical document equal to absurdity.
