The East Meets West Gallery is proud to introduce a new artist from Germany: Hans Mendler.
Hans Mendler works in different styles and uses different techniques: oil, acrylics, Chinese ink, even his fingers and collages.
Most of his paintings are abstract; some of them almost monochrome, but the rest are painted with lively, even wild colours. Sometimes bright colours are freely flown into quiet colours and vice versa. Nevertheless, the change always seems natural and thoughtfully composed. The main theme of his works lies in its dynamics, movement, flow, whether it is the ripples of water in the river, the flight of a feather or the path of a windstorm.

Hans Mendler and Evgeny Kryukov work together well in the common exhibition space as their mental approach to art, their methods and techniques are very similar.
That particularly concerns Evgeny Kryukov's new abstract series of works "Movements".

Elegance, sophistication and pictorial character are the main features of Evgeny' s abstract graphic works. His fine, punctuated black lines drawn on a white background emphasize the fragile and incredibly unreal character of his works which suddenly transform into a familiar, recognizable image. The absence of a complicated background in the works make them airy and light, but that does not affect the meticulously organized composition of the artist.
