Konstantin Batynkov, the exhibition "Fun"
From the perspective of an array of "technical" parameters work Batynkov - almost the perfect option for those who buy contemporary art. There is a historical and intellectual background (Moscow "Mitek"), there is a very recognizable style, a million show, which is very important - a very large number of papers on the market (designed by prolific, industrious, there is the possibility of capricious and choose the best), normal work with the gallery owner and, Finally, the relatively affordable prices. For example, the Jolly Roger (skull) from the exhibition "Fun" on the price list is in the gallery 4,5 thousand dollars (if the organizers have not mixed up the dollar and euro in price, they tend to nominate the euro). For the serious collector, but the best thing for the exhibition - the money is not great.
Price step represented at the exhibition of works - 2 - 3,5 - 4,5 - 5 - 6 thousand dollars all in the technique-acrylic on canvas. Prices are arranged by size. For example, 70 x 60 are 4,5 thousand dollars, and 80 x 100 - 6000 USD This is the size of the picture "Degunino" (probably the village of Autograph "Railway"). The biggest (glamorous, but not the best) - "From the long march" (100x200) is worth 15 thousand dollars Disadvantages subjective. Not everyone will like the transition from classical black and white Batynkov in color. It's like a painted Stirlitz will be barriers to the opposition. Plus I did not seem close to the romantic scenes with birch trees, but landscapes. There is in them something poppy. Still Batynkov accustomed to absudnym subjects, nestrashnomu katastrofitsizmu, contemplation of his subjects from harm. But this, of course, to the amateur - in the hall are the tapestry hanging - under fifty paintings and stories for all tastes.
The exhibition opened yesterday in the gallery pop /off /art and will last until 12 December 2009.
