N2N Gallery and Make A Wish Foundation introduce solo exhibition “Sweets and Spices” by Kateryna Kosyanenko, accompanied by a Granting of a Wish to 11 year old girl Afra Adnan Obaid Alshamsi, in Avenue at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi
N2N Gallery and Make a Wish Foundation are coming together once more, for the opening of the first UAE solo exhibition of Kateryna Kosyanenko, who is a bright star on the Ukrainian art scene. Following in line with the vision of presenting exceptional artistic talent from Europe, N2N Gallery is delighted to introduce the acclaimed artist to Abu Dhabi, an exhibition showcasing never-before seen works of art. This time the exhibition will also be accompanied by a special guest, the 11 year old Afra, who aspires to become an artist. As part of Make A Wish Foundation’s granting of her wish, Afra and Kateryna Kosyanenko will spend four days painting and creating art together, and the final art work from Afra will be showcased as part of the exhibition and be auctioned, with the funds going towards the charity.
A sought-after painter in her country, Kateryna Kosyanenko has won artistic awards in Paris, Florence, Poland and Ukraine. Her oil paintings are breathtaking projections of unexpected, atmospheric visualizations, often borrowing from Ukrainian Baroque, Italian Renaissance and Fresco-style painting. With post modernist tendencies, her art is realised with realistic, traditional technique and executed with high level of skill. The paintings are a picturesque interpretation of the world, filled with spiritual harmony and visual beauty, often presented in optical blues and ultramarines, umber and sienna colors, reds and pinks.
Her paintings have been praised in Abu Dhabi and N2N Gallery, where she is represented as an in-house artist, having been favored among Emirati and visiting art collectors alike.
The solo exhibition “Sweets and Spices” is a series of her latest works accompanied by pieces from her previous collections.
The paintings of Kateryna and Afra can be viewed at Avenue at Etihad Towers from 1st to 14th of June, 2014.
Grand Opening will be on the 1st of June at 7:30pm in Avenue at Etihad Towers.Download PDF
