Street Art Meets Endangered Animals: Katya Krasnaya


If you love graffiti as much as you love nature then Mayfair’s Erarta Gallery (London) has just the show for you: “Exposed” by Russian artist Katya Krasnaya.

Supported by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), the young and talented painter Katya Krasnaya had created seven pieces especially for the exhibition, drawing her inspiration from the vulnerability of both graffiti street art and endangered animals. This is also a move away from animals regularly associated with the motherland. The Russian bear has featured consistently in Russian contemporary art and in some cases have even been used in photo-shoots with top models.
Mixing contemporary pop art with graffiti, vibrant colours and tags, Katya pays homage to these beautiful and tragic creatures.

Katya Krasnaya’s “Exposed” runs until 23rd May 2015 at Erarta Gallery, Berkeley Street, London.
