The tango as an excuse

The theme of this exhibition is the tango, the most sensuous dance in the world. Seductive, sexy, filled with desire and jealousy, a desire for power, the wish to dominate the partner but also a longing for love and intimacy. He and she, the story that unfolds between them on the dance floor for a few moments.

All that jazz

Portraits of musicians, bands and instruments by Krzysztof Kokoryn are being exhibited at the Levekusen Jazz Festival near Cologne.

Kokoryn is excellent at translating sounds, rhythm and the concert atmosphere into the language of painting. Being a friend of many musicians (e.g. famous for Voo Voo’s videoclips), he does not paint without music. His ability to see musical motifs is so unbelievable that the world’s most renowned jazz people identify with it. The foreword to the “Jazz” exhibition catalogue was written by an American drummer, Peter Erskine. Fascinated with Kokoryn’s art and his ability to capture “the swing” on canvas, Peter Erskine used his painting as the cover for “Music for Moderns” album by The Lounge Art Ensemble and now he has invited the artist to Leverkusen.
