You are cordially invited to the Circle Gallery on 7 July 2017 for a private view of Visual Expressions: From Athens to Sheffield, opening a solo exhibition of works by the contemporary visual artist, Nadezhda Yakustidi, best known as Nadya. The exhibition will be open for viewing until 11 August 2017. Featuring a bright selection of portraits, landscapes and still lifes of floral and fruit themes, the exhibition will aim to celebrate expressions of life through colour and creatively energize Sheffield audiences during the peak of England's summer. Nadya is delighted to showcase a collection of twenty-seven works in Sheffield city, which like Athens is built on seven hills. The common concept behind the Cities On Seven Hills inspired the artist to add a unifying touch to this exhibition’s title. Visual Expressions: From Athens to Sheffield reflects Nadya’s creative vision and mode of self-expression, which have been greatly influenced by the warmth and vibrancy of Greece, a country very dear to the artist’s heart. Nadya’s style has been described as Expressionist with touches of Symbolism, Post-Impressionism and Fauvism. The exhibition’s palette is bright, and the artist applies colour with versatility, optimism and self-reflection. As Nadya admits, for her art is an expression of soul in colour. Her visual expressions are imbued with love for nature, flowers, people and all making up her world. Travels throughout Athens, the Greek countryside and islands have served Nadya as a source of inspiration and frequently compelled her to share her experiences there via vivid, original and expressive work, which is thoughtfully curated in this exhibition. BIO Born in 1967 in Stavropol, Russia (former USSR), Nadezhda "Nadya" Yakustidi is a contemporary visual artist based in Athens, Greece. She is a distinguished member of the International Union of Artists and the Russian Union of Artists, as well as the NYC-based International Fine Arts Consortium (IFAC) and London-based ArtCan (former What Is the Point?) arts collective. Nadya’s work is held in private collections, galleries and art salons in Greece, Australia, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Canada, Russia, the Unites States and the United Kingdom. She has participated in numerous international exhibitions, including a solo show at the Regional Museum of History and Art in the Stavropol region of Russia and group shows at Clerkenwell Gallery, Strand Gallery, 19 Greek Street Gallery and TOTO Concept Gallery in London. Visual Expressions: From Athens to Sheffield is Nadya's third solo exhibition in the UK, following THE BLISS OF COLOUR, which successfully took place in Shoreditch in December 2016 and Hellas Inspired Visual Expressions, which was elegantly curated this June at the London Latvian Centre. www.nadyaart.com The Circle Gallery is conveniently located in the heart of Sheffield at The Circle, 33 Rockingham Lane, Sheffield S1 4FW.
