Collector Favorites: March
Ever wondered what other people are buying for their personal art collections? Though your tastes may differ, sometimes seeing what others are purchasing can help you discover new artists whose works you might not otherwise have considered. Below, meet 5 artists who have proven to be popular favorites with our collectors.
Fabio Coruzzi’s paintings are poems to each of the places he’s been. He believes each place leaves a mark, like a scar, inside us. He sees that scar as poetry. Provocative and ironic, Fabio Coruzzi’s language describes scenarios of social criticism, reflecting the cultural reality of our metropolitan society, sandwiched, as he says, “between concrete and the asphalt.” See more artworks by Fabio Coruzzi.
Zahar is a Kiev-based artist who has exhibited his work throughout Ukraine. His works build on an alchemy of past movements, evoking the capricious brushstrokes of early impressionists, coupled with an aesthetic valorization of nature that harkens to romanticism. His garden scenes and portraits in particular display an aptitude for maintaining textural softness beyond their rich application of paint. See more artworks by Zahar Shevchyk.
Claus Gawin, born in 1950, is a Contemporary Artist living and working in Copenhagen. His style is largely about color mixture and non-stop movement and the strong way he spreads the painting all around the canvas. Superb expression and total intervention by him. See more artworks by Claus Gawin.
David Fredrik Moussallem
David Fredrik Moussallem’s mixed-media works blend chaos and harmony, all while expressing different “stories from the streets.” Extensive world travels inspire his focus on global subcultures and urban street life. His background in advertising, graphic design, and typography heavily influence his compositional approach. Moussallem describes his pieces as, “revealing our differences and similarities in a raw and honest approach.” See more artworks by David Fredrik Moussallem.
Since 1975, Frans Muhren has experimented in various kinds of materials, trying to find the best way to articulate his personal themes: movement, contradictions (such as heavy and light, convex and concave, abstract and epic) and the possibilities of matter. See more artworks by Frans Muhren.
