Gallery 70 Contemporary Art is pleased to present a solo show exhibition  of recent artworks in sculpture and painting by Jon Kraja . Jon Kraja brings his personal research of beauty with symbolical values, an oversensitive beauty deriving from the  subconscience and touching not only the human beings but also the surrounding nature. He invites the viewer in an onerique dimension and in creating its own perception in a personal and intimate space.".. the deformed bottles and the mannequins are objects of show-window. The brutality of the deformed plastic bottle and the sensuality of the mannequin combine in an aggregate piece, a complexe artwork and a structure brutally elegant ..JK"

the opening reception will take place at Gallery 70 Contemporary Art, Toptani Center , Ground Floor on September 12, 2019 between 19:00 - 21:00

About JON KRAJA 

“My painting is an emotional load that pours over canvas. It is a shiver frozen in time. As long as I’m alive, my painting never ends. It is my life, charged with meaning and misunderstanding, my unconscious that astonishes me with its instinct. It is my penance, and the string that ties my heaven and hell. It is love, which not everyone can see.”

Jon Kraja is born in Tirana in 1970, where  he graduated from the Arts Accademy of Tirana in 1994. Descending from a family of artists, inspired by his grand father Master Kole Shiroka and raised during the communist dictatorship in Albania, Jon Kraja, has developed an original and personal style, based on autodidact research, going beyond conformities. He produces powerful and surprising artworks preoccupied by the unknown and the usefullness of lifeless objects.

Jon Kraja has exhibited in Albania, France, Netherlands, USA. His works are part of private collections.
