However, the gallery also deals with well-known masters of Russian contemporary art such as George Ostretsov and Alexei Lantsev.

At Cosmoscow 2019 ARTIS GALLERY presents the “Randomness” project of young authors reimagining the concepts of probability and regularity. The exhibition includes the works by three artists: Varya Schuka, Asmik Melkonyan from Moscow, Liya Safina. Liya Safina from Kazan presents abstract works where random objects are combined into a single harmonious composition. Varya Schuka from Moscow works with 3D objects and visual rhyme, complementing everyday landscapes shot on the iPhone with details created using 3D graphics. Asmik Melkonyan from Moscow continues “Da Capo” series where the repeating elements of the ornament, duplicating the outlines of the human body, are brought to perfection.
