Artist Edgars Mikelsons is one of the most original and eccentric personalities in the field of contemporary art in Latvia. He is one of the few who have focused his skills in the urban landscape genre. The main theme of his paintings is the architecture of Riga. He is interested in forceful unordinary views and concepts. When realising his ideas on paper, he uses several techniques: sketches, watercolours, pastel and gouache.
Edgar’s works display Riga`s architecture from a totally different perspective.
His artwork evokes romantic memories of Riga`s past, featuring buildings and streets that no longer exist or that have radically changed their appearance.
More than 60 works will be shown in this exhibition ''Riga...Vanishing'' .
