"Pavel Pepperstein – The Cold Center of the Sun" at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Saint-Etienne.
An Moscow-born painter, Pavel Pepperstein is one of the most influential artists of the new Russian generation.
His works mixes references to the iconography of supremacy, the Russian avant-garde movement with images from Russian folklore, Hollywood movies, science-fiction and his own imagination. Pepperstein endeavours to create a new plastic vocabulary centred around contemporaneity, simultaneously integrating Russian historic, eclectic and cultural references.
