LEV KHESIN X BERLUTI EXCLUSIVE ONLINE SHOW

Aug 12, 2021

WEST END ART SPACE PROUDLY PRESENTS
LEV KHESIN X BERLUTI
EXCLUSIVE ONLINE SHOW
Berlin-based Russian contemporary artist Lev Khesin expresses himself in abstract, tactile patterns created through multiple layers and colours of silicone paint. Khesin’s practice echoes that of Berluti’s artisanal patina methods, drawing a natural connection between both.

West End Art Space proudly presents an exclusive online collection of artworks by Berlin-based Russian contemporary artist Lev Khesin, in collaboration with the prestigious fashion house Berluti // Melbourne. Berluti Winter Collection 21-22 by artistic director Kris Van Assche in collaboration with Lev Khesin, draws on the similarities between the artworks colour graduation and the patina finish on the handpainted leather garments.

The symbiosis between the digital presentation format and the highly tactile nature of Lev Khesin’s artistic expression creates a dialogue between the palpable and the virtual: a search for the idea of human and material connection in the digital sphere. The need for a tangible and tactile reality is reflected in motifs, colours, and textures informed by the work of Lev Khesin. Interpreted in garments and accessories, they create the foundation for a collection embodied by fluidity, adaptability, and above all, the human hand.

As another lockdown hits Melbourne, Lev Khesin’s luminous artworks continue to demonstrate a solid vision and strong aesthetic.
