Viveek Sharma & Hideki Iinuma

19th March to 23rd April
Fabian & Claude Walter Galerie & Art Consulting GmbH, Zürich

Viveek Sharma graduated from the J.J. School of Arts in Mumbai. He initially focused on drawing, a technique that still forms the basis of his work today. Since 2005 the artist has been painting photo-realistic pictures, in which he deals with his impressions, emotions and experiences, or actual incidents. In Viveek Sharma's work socio-critical, economic and political topics are juxtaposed and conveyed to the viewer either by way of messages or with the help of metaphors. Incidentally Sharma's work had also been selected at the Gennext show in 2007 hosted by Aakriti Art Gallery, Kolkata.

Hideki Iinuma's works are sculpted from wood. Iinuma finds himself in a borderland between Western and Eastern culture marked both by contrasts and similarities. He studied sculpture at the Aichi Prefecture University of Fine-Arts, Aichi, Japan, and the Ecole Regionale des Beaux-Arts, Nantes, France. In his sculptures that bear evidence of an impressive craftsmanship, Iinuma draws on the old ichiboku-zukuri technique common in Japan until the 10th century by which the work is crafted from a block of wood, and further develops it.
