In honour of its nineteenth anniversary the Ruarts Gallery presents a celebratory exhibition by the Moscow artist GIWE. The gallery, founded in 2004 by collector Marianna Sardarova, has been representing Russian and foreign artists for many years, including participants in the ‘street wave’ movement. GIWE has been working as a graffiti artist since 2000, analysing modern man, the standardisation of life, copying and imitation, as reflected in his practice. Working primarily with rhinestones, the artist places them on canvases, tapestries, porcelain and Zhostovo trays, thereby poetising everyday existence and street life.
