N2N Gallery is proud to call all aspiring and established artists in Abu Dhabi to work with and learn from acclaimed Crimean artist Igor Shipilin and exhibit your work at a public group art exhibition.

If you missed the last year Landscape Painting master classes with Igor Shipilin, there is a new opportunity to meet and work under the guidance of the acclaimed landscape artist, whose works are displayed in Moscow Museum of Modern Art and the Hermitage State Museum in St. Petersburg.

Under the name “Abstract painting – from casual to conscious” – the new series of master classes with Igor Shipilin are something to get excited about. This time oriented more towards abstract painting and the creativity that lies within each and every one of us. Improvisation will be the starting point of the creation process and slowly the technique will open path to a conscious composition. Like in a dream, the painting process will combine real and fantastic elements, patterns and bizarre forms that are not random, but born in our subconscious and that develop and transform while in the process, taking conscious shapes.

Igor Shipilin has been exhibiting his art works professionally since 1986. With over 20 solo exhibitions, he is a respected artist who acts as the regional head of the National Artist’s Union in Sevastopol, Crimea.  His technique and creative painting is celebrated by collectors and art critics alike. Anyone learning from the master has a rare chance to plunge into a journey of true artistic discovery and growth.

Joining the course, you should view this as a comprehensive series of master classes where you will learn from beginning how to think, see and reason like an artist, through the guidance of Igor Shipilin. At the end of the course, you will know how to build a composition, how to select and use the color palette and apply paint. You will be able to pick the format and the rhythm of the work. You will come out of the master classes knowing how to independently compose a piece of art from start to finish. The culmination of the course will be a final masterpiece, which will be exhibited as a part of a group exhibition in N2N Gallery in Nation Towers Galleria!

The course will be held across 6 days, starting 6th of February 2016.

Course Structure:

Days 1: Introduction & building foundations for the piece.

The artist will present his vision, implementation and the objectives and skills to be achieved during the master class.

After a short break, the students will start working under Igor Shipilin’s guidance. The first step will be improvisation (creating an acrylic abstract), an unconscious painting born from your unleashed imagination and creativity. The resulting image will serve as a starting point, the basis for the future work. The composition is not yet defined and the further task will be to find it within your abstract work.

Day 2, 3,4,5,6:

The following days will focus on practicing abstract thinking, fantasizing gradually and revealing shapes. You will gradually move from subconscious to conscious. The artist will be demonstrating the process, for you to understand how to approach the canvas and engage in the creative task. You will learn to sense the right moment, the color spots to be united as one, the lines to give direction and so, gradually, you will create harmony. The main thing is to know when to stop, to feel the moment when the work is done. It is important to stop in time without bringing up a realistic picture of the specifics.

The students will take all their previously learned knowledge and bring their composition to life, culminating in the final painting. The final piece will be shown in a group exhibition for public view for duration of a 1 week.
