The announcement is about Igor Shulman’s exhibition, featuring a series of still life paintings titled Invasion
This’s a typical exhibition. A bit unusual, but still quite common. Who is invading – it’s unclear. Some kind of surrealist still life on the stage…
Everything is quite simple. This is real time that fills my consciousness with such images of activity. And I am just sharing my impressions with you.
This may seem sad or depressing. It’s not. It’s just an imprint of today. Let it be a philosophical parable for someone, a black joke for someone else. For me, it’s an invasion of reality into me.
About Solo Exhibition
Shulman, a renowned artist based in Prague, is known for his large series of paintings, which are phenomenological statements about the objects themselves, devoid of emotion, expression, or personal relationships.
The Invasion exhibition, showcasing works from 2022-2023, presents a series of still life paintings that maintain Shulman’s style of addressing individual objects, but with the intrusion of war and violence into the space. The “metaphysical still lifes” delicately connect two worlds: the domestic realms of prosperity and the harsh worlds of war.
The exhibition is taking place at the Gallery Satija at 18:00 on January 25th, 2024.

“Yesterday, the exhibition of the wonderful person and artist Igor Andrianov opened in the gallery under the Charles Bridge. It was a full house, and many couldn’t even get inside. The atmosphere was wonderful.”
“Yesterday’s vernissage Igor Andrianov”
“They came to congratulate the Master on the opening of the exhibition. They met many wonderful people, and the paintings… oh… each one makes you think. Thank you, Igor Shulman.”
“What could be more “memorable” than a little girl’s white dress with a red polka-dot? Tenderness and dreams, parental love and care, toys and gifts… These are all part of a normal life, of course, the life of a refugee…”
“Igor Andrianov’s exhibition today, a good person and a good artist, congratulations.”
“Tormented by spiritual thirst, I finally escaped from my eastern province and yesterday, among the famous Russian language speakers, I saw and heard with my own senses the trembling of the sky and the flight of the heavenly angels at Igor Andrianov’s (Igor Shulman’s) vernissage. The circle of capital city dwellers did not notice the arrival of a provincial outsider, but they warmly treated me with wine and sandwiches. The memories of the feast with kettlebells, chains, and grenades, the snowy New Year’s table under the open sky, and the speckled chickens on the concert grand piano will stay with me for a long time. Thank you to the artist for giving me a bright reason to break out of my own shell and touch the sparkling fruits of his talent.”
“The most pleasant creative evening with Eugene Demenok at Igor Andrianov’s exhibition. I was very glad to see everyone! Tanya Weinstein. Tanechka, you are a wonderful organizer and the heart of the whole event ♥️”
“Our cultural and aesthetic evenings continue.”
“I heartily thank Igor Andrianov and Tanya Weinstein for the invitation to the wonderful atmosphere of yesterday’s vernissage. Respect and my respect to you for the art that you bring to light. For those of my friends who are not familiar with the work of Prague artist Igor Shulman, I will provide a brief review. Yesterday, on January 25th, at 6:00 pm in the center of Prague, at the Satya gallery, the vernissage of Igor Shulman’s works entitled “Invasion” opened. The exhibition of artistic canvases “Invasion” showcases the artist’s works from 2022-2023 and represents a series of still lifes that maintain Shulman’s style in relation to individual objects, but with an “invasion” into the space of war and violence. The paintings leave a deep impression and make us seriously think about the incomprehensible processes happening in the world today… “Metaphysical still lifes” delicately combine two worlds: the everyday world of prosperity and the harsh world of war… In other news, immersion in the world of art already requires a child to be aware of the beauty of the surrounding reality. The material environment is an artistic material, aesthetics… Pedagogical guidance for self-education is carried out in stages, although it proceeds not so much linearly as concentrically.”
