Simplified forms and vibrant hues lend the works of Russian artist, Sanya Kantarovsky, the air of the magical and folkloric. While the artist’s iconography can be ambiguous and open to interpretation, if not downright mysterious, one cannot help but feel they have stepped into the pages of a Slavic fairytale. Here, two figures explore their relationship from a gritty, melancholic point of view.

Despite immigrating to the United States as a child, the work of Sanya Kantarovsky (Russian, b.1982) remains quintessentially Slavic. Simple, yet expressive, the artist’s figures are purposefully ambiguous. A saturated palette of dark colors and expressive forms produce a folkish feel composed of figures reminiscent of Egon Schiele, and Edvard Munch. Kantarovsky's works are included in the permanent collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Tate Modern, London; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
