Alfred Freddy Krupa
At the River, Contemporary Abstract Ink Painting Expressionist Landscape Paper




'At the River' is a stunning contemporary abstract ink painting on paper by Croatian emerging artist - Alfred Freddy Krupa. It is an expressionist artwork with a traditional Japanese calligraphy design, intense movements, and highly emotional style and black and white color aesthetic. The artist is recognized for his uniquely conceptual approach and connection between Eastern (Asian) art traditions and Western expressionism. It is shipped directly from the artist's current studio in Croatia along with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed and dated by the artist. You will receive the painting rolled up in a tube, unframed. It is the safest way to transport the painting. Additional framing will be required New Ink Art movement has gained international recognition with both Christie's and Sotheby’s organizing Contemporary Ink painting auctions in 2013 and 2014. The artworks by prominent names such as Lui Shou-Kwan and Liu Kuo-Sung have reached prices ranging from several hundred thousand to several million dollars. For a long time, New Ink Art movement was limited to the East, with very little knowledge about it outside of the Asian continent. However, over time the movement has found its way to the West, where it has influenced a new generation of artists. Alfred Freddy Krupa, the creator of New Ink Art Manifesto, is considered the pivotal figure in Western New Ink Art movement. Inspired by the ink practice of Japan, where he used to live, Krupa uses dense black ink to create tense, raw and direct art that reflects his minimalist approach. Contemporary Ink painting was embraced by art institutions as well. In 2013, The Metropolitan Museum of Art has staged Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China exhibition, presenting works of thirty-five Chinese ink artists created between the 1980s and the present day. Finland - China international Contemporary Ink Art exhibition was recently held in Red gallery in Helsinki and artworks by Contemporary Ink masters were also included in INK Brussels 2019. The relevance of the new movement is expected to rise, as more and more Asian and Western collectors are getting increasingly interested in the genre that is considered truly unique to Asia.
