East Meets West Gallery is proud to introduce a new artist from
Germany: Hans Mendler.
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.

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.
