SELECTED WORKS AND PROJECTS
CURRENT: Picasso Series showing at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg as part of ‘Picasso in Contemporary Art’
RECENT: Riflemaker, London, Art Basel: Basel
DELIRIOUS PICASSO is the first showing of works by the British artist Wolfe von Lenkiewicz in New York. Known for his reconfigurations of well-known art historical imagery and contemporary visual culture, his latest series of paintings juxtaposes Picasso’s oeuvre with the art of ukiyo-e to create a surprisingly harmonious marriage between East and West through a dramatic and riotous explosion of colour and style.
Wolfe von Lenkiewicz’s works Saltimbanques, 2014, The Frugal Repast, 2014 and The Smokers, 2009 will be included in the upcoming survey exhibition ‘Picasso In Contemporary Art’ at the Deichtorhallen, Hamburg.
Wolfe von Lenkiewicz is a recognised London-based artist known for his reconfigurations of well-known imageries from art history. He is currently exhibiting some of his works at Galerie MIRO in Prague. Radio Prague’s editor-in-chief Miroslav Krupicka attended the exhibition’s opening last week and later met up with the artist to talk about his usual style of work. He began by asking what had led him to exhibit in Prague.
