New Artist - Klever

Ask any artist, and most will tell you that the art within them cannot be contained. It cannot be limited by conformity; their art cannot be censored. Growing up in the former Soviet Union, abstract and landscape painter Klever became one of the countries most celebrated underground artists. Coined a “non-conformist” artist, because he refused to adhere to the censorship that prohibited artists from creating historical, religious, abstract, anti-Soviet, and erotic art.

Klever passed in 2013, but his family preserves his legacy by working with select galleries across the globe. We are honored to have the work of such a talented artist. Many artists take for granted their freedom of artistic expression—which makes Klever’s bold abstracts as brave as they are beautiful.
