A very good friend of mine, Oleg Tyrkin has got a fantastic exhibition of his “Gagarin” works of digital art on canvas at Pushkin House in Bloomsbury, London.
‘Fourteen digital works on canvas shown in the exhibition “Gagarin” are on display at the Pushkin House in London, 5a Bloomsbury Square.
Oleg Tyrkin is a renowned contemporary Russian Artist. He was born in Vladimir, Central Russia, in 1965. He primarily trained as a military helicopter pilot. His art work has been shown at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, The Science Museum in London, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary art, and many other internationally acclaimed venues and projects.
In this project, Yuri Gagarin is viewed as a phenomenon in the making of history of the relations between the UK and the Soviet Union. The exhibition explores juxtapositions of national interests and eternity, communism and freedom, science and propaganda, simplicity and sophistication.
Earlier this year works by Oleg Tyrkin dedicated to Yuri Gagarin were shown at the Science Museum in London, as part of The UK-Russia Year of Space 2011.’
