Onyeka Ibe: Interactive Spaces, Gallery Elena Shchukina, until 9 November 2013
This new gallery in Mayfair’s Lees Place is created by Elena Shchukina who just happens to be an artist herself. It is an interestingly arranged space as she wishes to have furniture, carpets, lights, objects and even jewellery that reflect and complement the paintings on view.
The first exhibition in the gallery celebrates the richly coloured works by the Nigerian-born artist Onyeka Ibe. As you can see these are in an almost room-like setting with the furniture, upholstery and rugs whose colours echo the paintings.
