The present exhibition gathers the two artists and shows works connected with the theme of the Universe.
Georges Papazov’s approach to the topic was through exploration of the empty spaces, meditation and spiritual travel. He creates abstract geometrical compositions lit by neon hue that mystify.
Nikolay Diulgheroff’s interests toward the cosmic space was connected with the futuristic visions of the space-time continuum.
