Cuturi Gallery showcases Summerdose, a debut solo exhibition by artist Yam Shalev (b. 1996, Israel). Having lived in Berlin, Shalev draws inspiration from his everyday surroundings. In his entirely new selection of works, the artist navigates through mementos of Berlin culture through his stylish take on still-life paintings.
The artist's delicious canvases evoke a youthful glow of contemporary life, plastered with sunglasses, cigarette boxes and mats adorned with decadent food. Although devoid of human presence, the juxtaposing tones and layers in his canvases beams of life. His paintings also elicit a sense of mysteriousness about the narrations that run beyond the borders of his painting.
