SANUR, Bali (BPN) – ARTOTEL Sanur-Bali announces its latest collaboration with Nyaman Gallery, presenting a never-before-seen series of artworks by a Russian artist Evgeny Bam, titled ‘Love Again’. Bam’s paintings and merchandises are on view from 1st October to 25th November 2018 at ARTOTEL Sanur-Bali’s ARTSPACE.
Evgeny Bam is one being full of smiles. Russian by blood, he was drawn to the waves of Bali about eight years ago and decided to stay ever since. Evgeny Bam has been an illustrator and a street artist since 2010, using mediums vary from papers and canvas to the street walls.
On this latest collection, Bam added a contemporary vibe while keeping his “naive tribal” persona. Love Again portrays, in vibrant colors, the thin layers of subtle and sincere emotions that emerge in the beginning of a relationship between two people.
“It’s about life. About relationship and what happens in soul and heart,” he said.
Bam added, it reflects a feeling of lightness when the first sight sparks an attraction. A new couple, unknown to each other and of the future, floats in the fantasy world, wondering about the hidden truth waiting to be discovered. It is a very personal expression of love.
In this exhibition, Bam displays over 25 paintings and merchandise items, as well as his own a clothing line produced by Nyaman Gallery.
While Goya A. Mahmud, ARTOTEL Group Bali Regional Manager is impressed at Bam’s ability to deliver his message through the absurd yet playful visual medium.
“I’m drawn to the fact on how the artist seems to be able to bring about the inquisitive mood as well as humor. The subjects of his art are very distinctive, and in art, that’s very important for the art enthusiasts and our guests,” Goya said.
