… Wrote Orhan Pamuk in “My Name is Red”. Color makes me happy – it soften my sorrows, gives me hope and makes everything feel a little bit better.
By extension, colorful, vibrant art makes me happy too. I love finding new artists whose work I wanna put up on my walls. And recently I was lucky enough to happen upon just such an artist: the Russian born and Moscow based, Slava Fokk.
His unique style (which, for me, brings to mind some sort of Modigliani-esque Lolita Lempicka) immediately drew me in and now… I’m hooked. The fact that I haven’t yet figured out how much his pieces usually go for (probably too much) or if one might find prints of them available for sale, pains me greatly. In fact it does so to such an extent that I am considering contacting the artist himself. If/ when I find out more, I’ll update this – just in case you find yourselves as mesmerised by his work as I am.
Until then, here’s some of my favorite pieces from his website…
