Red Square Gallery is delighted to present the first Solo exhibition in Hong Kong "To the East" of works by prominent Russian artist, a member of the Artist Union of Russia, Igor Obukhov.
Personal exhibition of Igor Obukhov "To the East" - was a result of several trips to the Far East (Japan, China, Indonesia). The original culture of these countries, rich artistic heritage, gave the author a some kind of impulse to the creation of entire series "Singapore" in the framework of the project "East Transit", "Thirty-Six Views near the Mount Fuji ", "All around". Knowledge accumulated by the artist during his trips was quite diverse. One important aspect of the author's work was the choice of images, stories and attributes that make up the iconic theme of the works.

Landscape themes, motifs, images of nature, architecture and space, unobtrusively but irrevocably create a game of imagination. These works are based on a some kind of frontier: on one hand, it is an observation and experience, on the other - conventional abstracted image-sign. Texture and colour saturation are one of the features of Igor Obukhov's works. It is certainly fresh, bright colours, which at the same time recreate the story, and spiritualize it. The image gives the impression of a bizarre space, turning into stereoscopy.

The creative work of the master is based on the national realistic tradition, however it does not deprive it of individuality, expression of its own artistic language and the ability to a bold creative twist. Nature is presented by author's imaginative layering. Geographic targeting, stated in the title, does not oblige the artist to create a particular landscape, but on the contrary provides the ability to create a typical image of nature and space. Ambiguous and self-plotting action, often contains uncertainty and mystery. From the point of view of genre classification, many landscapes of the artist can be attributed to the thematic landscape-painting than to the landscape in the traditional sense of the genre.

Igor Obukhov's paintings possess charisma and a personal lyrical reflection, particularly in tune with our time, with its unmet need in the beauty and purity of life, with its eternal anxiety of thinking about the world. Wisdom and primeval naivete, naturally connecting and defining creative nature, help the artist to create images through the unique solution of the composition and the organic tissue of the sensual world.

Igor Obukhov participated in numerous art shows and projects both in Russia and in the several counties in South East Asia, such as, China, Japan, South Korea and Singapore.

He has received multiple awards from the Russian Government. His works are kept in museums, galleries and private collections.
