Installation Views

Ekta, La Chance y Mafia Tabak son tres creadores que parten de la abstracción para generar un universo propio y característico. Todos ellos poseen una marcada influencia del arte de las vanguardias, pero han sabido adaptar su pintura a los tiempos que corren, trabajando además con numerosos medios y formatos.  



Daniel Götesson (1978), known as EKTA, is a Swedish artist, currently based in Gothenburg.

EKTA works across numerous mediums, encompassing drawing, collage, painting, sculpture, textile, large wall works, animation, performance, installation, and music. His practice is characterized by a willingness to take bold risks, both in its literal sense as well as artistically. In the context of where he makes his work and in his ongoing investigation into new materials and visual language.



Mafia Tabak (b. 1990, AUSTRIA). Lives and works in Vienna.

By painting graffiti since 2006, his studio work (canvases, installations, drawings, prints) are nowadays another way of expressing himself, which is of course all influenced by his graffiti background. His work reflects his ironic driven humor and the fact the he does not want to take painting as something too serious. The use of his materials, motives, references and even how MAFIA TABAK shapes forms and chooses colors are related on cliches but reinterpret in new contextes. Although all the forms, figurative or abstract, portrayed expressively and vividly, Tabak organizes them into intelligible structures.


William LaChance

Lives and works in St Louis.

William LaChance’s pictures are associations of displaced forms and colors cribbed from graphic design, fashion, art history and nature itself cobbled together using a variety of methods and materials from painting and printmaking to assemblage and sewing. The paintings themselves have shifting hierarchies of similar concerns: of material exploration, abstract identity, formal space and narrative expression.
