Michal Singer Exhibition, Cork (30 April to 22 May 2013)

(This article expired 31.07.2013.)

Cork Vision Centre are running an exhibition of paintings by prominent Czech artist Michal Singer from 30 April to 22 May. The exhibition entitled ‘Argonautic’ was officially opened on 30 April in the presence of Cork City representatives, Czech Ambassador T. Kafka and the artist himself.

An exhibition entitled ‘Argonautic’ by Czech artist Michal Singer was officially opened in Cork, 30 April 2013. A total of 20 works are on display by the prominent Czech artist and the official opening was well received by the 80 invited guests in attendance.

The exhibition was opened by Deputy Lord Mayor Cllr J. Corr, along with Gallery Director J. Miller and the Czech Ambassador T. Kafka. Other city representatives and visitors in attendance left the evening reflecting on the variety of colours, extraordinary energy and overall positive charge which are carried in most of the artist’s works.

Michal Singer is one of the most outstanding artists of our time, earning his position as a respected artist through his distinct style and enormous energy. He is most often compared to modernist Vincent van Gogh, whose work he highly respects, but goes beyond that with his variety and versatility. His works are realised through paintings, drawings, graphics, collages and applied art and he is also known as an author of original essays, poetry and prose texts of philosophical orientation. His paintings are represented in the collections of prominent state and public institutions whilst also being a popular artist among private collectors.
