From Alex Katz to the Recycle Group, 10 Trending Artists at Cosmoscow
The top of this most-followed artist list might be a given: Alex Katz, one of the world’s most beloved and influential painters, who was born to Russian immigrants, was chosen as a highlight of the fair by Garage founder Dasha Zhukova, no doubt directing eyes toward his painting of a bathing cap-sporting blond, on view with Galeria Javier Lopez. Next on the list is Moscow-based collaborative AES+F , widely known for their seductive, hypnotic aesthetic, but the artists that follow—an emerging generation of Russian and Eastern European names—may come as a surprise: From an up-and-coming photographer who hails from Rostov-on-Don to Recycle Group, a Russian collective of provocative 20-somethings, discover the list of artists below, and see how Cosmoscow—a fair that aims to introduce younger Russian artists to international collectors—appears to be succeeding.
