The Times includes a selection of 122 works spanning Kakanias’ five year period working as a contributing editor for the publication. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and the first time these drawings have been exhibited in a gallery context. Up until this point, the pieces have only been seen within the printed or digitally published pages of T Magazine.
Konstantin Kakanias creates whimsical paintings observing the decadent worlds of art, design, travel, and luxury. Through Kakanias’ playful brush and bright color palette, the accumulation of these gouache works on paper and the subject matter ranging from the extraordinary to the banal provide the viewer with a certain view of life. This joie de vivre atmosphere and its characters may very well be the zeitgeist of our times.
