Berlin Exhibition by Ukrainian Painter Ivan Marchuk
July 08th, 2014
News from Berlin - On July 2nd the town hall Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf opened its gallery to exhibit the works of the renowned Ukrainian painter Ivan Marachuk. The exhibition is organized by the district administration, the Central Association for Ukrainians in Germany, and the Ukrainian Embassy.
Ivan Marchuk (*12.05.1936) is considered to be one of the leading artists of contemporary art in the Ukraine. He is widely recognized in Europe and the Daily Telegraph selected him to be one of the ‘Top 100 Living Geniuses’ in 2007. He is known to practice a unique style of painting, called “dabbing-on,” which he invented himself to create the effect of luminescence on his pictures.
After leaving the USSR in 1989 Ivan Marchuk lived in the US, Canada, and Australia before returning to an independent Ukraine and moving to Kiev. During his time abroad he became internationally recognized and is now regarded as a cultural ambassador on a national and international level.
Even though Ivan Marchuk is well known in the art scene, Berlin is only the second location in Germany to show his works.
The exhibition can be visited Monday to Friday from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm until the 31st of July 2014 and is free of charge.
Address: Rathaus Charlottenburg, Otto-Suhr-Allee 100, 10585 Berlin (2nd Floor)
