Silver Vahtre’s solo exhibition “Collages of Tartu”
From Friday, 25 June Silver Vahtre’s solo exhibition “Collages of Tartu” is open in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House.   The renowned designer, urban artist, printmaker, theatre and film artist Vahtre calls his last year’s large-format series “Collages of Tartu” but what else can the creation of an artist be called other than “collage”. Be it a portrait or a landscape and even if the outcome is purely realist, the artist has compiled it from his own visions.   However, Vahtre’s present imagery is something unique and dream-like. As a sovereign artist who knows his subject matter, he approaches his ideas without restraints, false modesty or hidden political/cultural/religious correctness. This results in compositions of urban environments, the people who inhabit them and full of historic references. These are not merely dreams but contemplative narratives.

 Tarrvi Laaman “G-Coffee”
“G-Coffee” displays Tarrvi Laaman's more recent artwork and is his first solo exhibition at Staapli 3 Art Gallery.  The artist describes: “This exhibition work became full of colour and contrast like the Jamaican life. It's inspired by the people of this island and its nature, warm sun and the Caribbean Sea. The impulse came directly from its nature and local culture - I printed cannabis leaves onto plywood and added bright acrylic colours that are common to Jamaica and which flow and pulsate on the paintings like the local folk music - in the rhythm of reggae”.  Tarrvi Laamann's exhibition “G-Coffee” brings the viewers prints and paintings with optimistic impulse and reggae rhythms. Tarrvi's creative practice is versatile - he has exhibited artwork in Estonia and abroad, published books and music, and his work is in various collections in Estonia, Finland, Jamaica, China and in many more.

Anna Škodenko “Stranger at Home”
Anna Škodenko will open her personal exhibition “Stranger at Home” in Draakon gallery at 6pm on Wednesday, June 9th, 2021. The exhibition will be open until July 3rd, 2021.   The artist comments on her current exposition: “You are looking through the large gallery window and make the decision to step inside of a home that is unknown for you – the space of my exhibition.   The phrase “stranger at home” can refer to a stranger in somebody else’s home. It can also mean an alteration in the perception of the external world, transforming close things to something distant. It can allude to a poetic sensation of crossing the borders and facing the unknown. Or it can just happen that at home one feels stranger than in foreign countries. I would like to leave you enough space here to wander towards whatever direction that feels accurate.
