Neo-nomads and Indigenous people is conceived in collaboration with the Russian Academy of Fine Arts and tells the changes and contradictions of a humanity in constant movement. The exhibition presents a corpus of 42 works drawn from eight different series of watercolors, which face a critical, surreal and pungent reflection on the scenario of contemporary metropolises and the humanity that populates them.
Florence will be the first stage of a cycle of personal exhibitions organized to make Esionov’s art known in Italy. The second appointment will be in Rome in September 2019, in the splendid setting of the Museum of San Salvatore in Lauro.
