Russian and Ukrainian Realism in CA

Vladimir Kovalyov – Still life with Potatoes

Silvana Gallery in Glendale, California is holding an exhibition of 21st century Russian and Ukrainian Realist art. You can see the work online, here. While some of the featured artists appear to lack the rigorous academic background of earlier generations, others have maintained some of the rigor and freshness that makes the Russian realist tradition stand out in the west. 

The exhibition will run through August 18

  1. This work does have a real freshness to it. I’m especially intrigued by Alexander Britsev. Terri Martin’s review is very interesting too. Thanks for including the links.
