With figurative paintings from every culture and style imaginable, there is something for everyone at the one-of-a-kind International Figurative Biennale! Don’t miss this unforgettable exhibition which only comes once every 2 years. It’s the only show of its kind on the West Coast and runs August 15- September 22 at John Natsoulas Gallery.

The show was created to give the opportunity to experience avant-garde, worldwide trends in art that can normally only be accessed in prestigious international arenas such as the Venice Biennale. Over 30 contemporary, cutting-edge artists have provided work that grapples with a notoriously difficult subject: the human figure. Throughout art history and across all cultures, this has remained a subject to which artists have been continually drawn. This year’s exhibition features some more classical artists, such as Italian artist, Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco, who has incorporated the figure and still life in a looser, more traditional style of painting. Del Turco, as well as Californian artist Dean Fisher, pays homage to these classical traditions. There are also displays of both neoclassical and surreal works — such as those by Avery Palmer and Argentinian painter, Gabriel Sainz. At times unsettling, these paintings undeniably command attention. Libyan artists, Yousef Fetis and Najlaa El- Ageli, have provided paintings that successfully create a relationship between their past and present culture. Paintings from Greece, Italy, Spain, Ukraine, Russia, Canada, Mexico, Czechia, Albania, the UK, and more will also be on display for the public. These are just a handful of the marvelous artworks at this year’s International Figurative Biennale- a marriage between cultures and tradition.

These talented painters give a walkthrough of the past, present and cutting edge in over 4 floors and 100 figurative paintings from around the globe, this is a rare opportunity you don’t want to miss!
