At last in Coningsby Gallery in London: Solo exhibition “BIRORAMA: REAL AND IRREAL LANDSCAPE” July 15th – August 24th, Coningsby Gallery, London. The painting and drawing experience derive from the observation of nature and the reality that surrounds me, from where I take emotional and formal cues that sintetized in my works. The deeper is the knowledge of painting and drawing techniques the greater is the chance of being able to express oneself and communicate. As you may notice, it’s a continuous research into the possibilities of an encounter between the real and the imaginary, through different materials and experiences, moving to a final and unrepeatable result. Each painting, drawing and digital image is the result of a unique study, which lasts the lifetime of the single opera. You won’t find here replicas of the same work in different colours. Subject, technique and formal approach unite to tell the story of each creative emotion. The works are organized into sections and subsections: the focus shifts from techniques to materials.
Eugene Kuperman is a published and an award winning artist. Eugene’s work is in many private collections including in a private collection of Robert Harris Rothschild who has many notable works in his collection by artists like: Rembrandt, Chagall, Dali, Ernst, Lichtenstein, and many more. An art catalog came out in 2012 featuring many of those artists as well as the work commissioned from Eugene. From 2010 to his passing in 2014, Eugene Kuperman studied with a renowned Russian artist Leonid Steele whose works are in many museums in the world, including pieces in the notable Tretakov Gallery in Russia. One of Leonid’s former teachers was a student of a famous Russian landscape painter: Isaac Levitan and another teacher he had, was a student of the famous Russian artist: Ilya Repin. From the end of 2014 since Leonid’s passing, Eugene studied painting with an award winning artist Lance Richlin until 2016. Eugene has been exhibiting since 2006. In 2008, Eugene traveled for a study abroad trip to Paris, France to study the old masters from life at the Louvre. He was very much inspired by the Rubens room there as well as the two Michelangelo sculptures; Dying Slave and Rebellious Slave. Another piece that left an impression on Eugene was Theodore Gerricault’s The Raft of the Medusa. In October 2017, Eugene Kuperman traveled to Italy to study the great Italian Renaissance and Baroque masters. He’s witnessed the greatest works by Michelangelo first hand, such as Statue of David, St.Peter’s Pieta, Sistine Chapel, Tomb of Pope Julius II, Doni Tondo, Pieta Palestrina, the unfinished Slave sculptures, Dome of St.Peter’s Basilica and more. Michelangelo serves as his greatest inspiration for his incredible sense of design and composition. Since late 2014, early 2015, Eugene took a new direction in art. He took upon himself to create works of social commentary which to any extent educate, enlighten, and promote change in society. Eugene Kuperman has been published in various art books, magazines, and newspapers.
