Opera Gallery Dubai, DIFC, presented the exclusive “Calligrafuturism - Chapter 1.0” - a gallery show by renowned calligrapher Pokras Lampas on December 6, 2016.
Pokras is a Russian-born artist who began his career creating graffiti in 2008. His work and technique as an artist has rapidly progressed and evolved into what is considered to be the most sophisticated form of “Calligraffiti” (a style he developed himself) and he has since been in high demand for artistic and corporate projects, as well as being commissioned by some of today’s biggest private art patrons in the world.
Most notably, he has achieved exceptional feats such as setting the World Record for the biggest calligraphy work, proudly adorning a rooftop in Moscow which is visible on Google Earth. Pokras is actively experimenting with different directions of modern calligraphy by applying and combining his knowledge of street culture, design and typography of different nations and ages. What is most striking about Pokras as an artist is his relentless ability to push the boundaries of calligraphy further than anybody ever has.
Whether it be in a different alphabet, the use of colours, mediums, instruments or texture; Pokras displays incredible maturity and curiosity. All of his passion and technique have been translated onto twenty captivating canvases, unveiled on the occasion of this solo show aptly titled “Calligrafuturism - Chapter 1.0”
“Calligrafuturism - Chapter 1.0” will run until December 20, 2016, at the Opera Gallery in DIFC. Check out pictures from the launch night below.
