New Paseo exhibit "From Russia with Love" features works of Russian painter Pavel Wang Yu Tsai
The new exhibit “From Russia with Love: A Retrospective of Fantasy,” is opening during the monthly Paseo Gallery Walk from 6 to 10 tonight at Paseo Originals Art Gallery 2920 Paseo. Russian painter Pavel Wang Yu Tsai also will give an artist lecture at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Paseo Originals.
“From Russia With Love” brings together a retrospective of metaphor-driven, whimsical fantasy art from four distinctive bodies of work by Yu Tsai. The 29 paintings chosen for the exhibit canvas an array of subject matter from Biblical and Buddhist anecdotes to euphemisms associated with puppetry and universal creationism, according to a news release. Solid comprehension of Pavel’s art is best attained through the observation of a body of his work. In observance of his individual artworks the viewer is left with a list of questions or assumptions. Series to series his visual compositions are like novels from a tome. Intensely biographical in nature, the oil on canvas and panel narratives, are spun stories from the bristles of the artist’s brushes.
Yu Tsai was born in 1956 along the northern foothills of the Terskei-Alatau range of Kyrgyzstan, near the Karakol river in in Przheval’sk, Russia. In 1983, he entered the Moscow People’s University Faculty of the Fine Arts program to study painting and drawing. A clever pupil, Pavel graduated the university after only three years of study in 1985. He then used his arts education to gain work within the film industry as an art assistant; later rising to the position of art director for several films and TV series such as “Legal Advice,” “And Said The Blind,” “Karagyz,” “Lullaby,” “Metamorphosis,” “Exodus” and “Resurrection.” Though film has played a prominent role in his history, Yu Tsai has been actively engaged in personal creative work since 1989. In 2007, after a lifetime of working with his creative abilities, Pavel was admitted to the Kyrgyzskoy Republic Union of Artists and in 2010 into the Kyrgystan Union of Cinematographers. In 1993, Yu Tsai opened his first solo exhibition at the State Museum of Contemporary Arts, G. Aytieva.
