Bernard Aptekar
For the Megaliths to the Megalopolis, Some Things Stay the Same

2009

$32,000

About

Aptekar's paintings are often a political and social commentary of the contradictions inherent to the human mankind. The surrealistic and expressionistic language used to covey the message, as well as the use of a palette with low contrast colors like light blue, green and pink, has it's roots in the work of Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, who Apterkar met at age of 11. The outcome is an imagery of an extraordinary visual impact and absolutely unique to Aptekar's own creative process. The surrealistic imagery of this artwork titled "For the Megaliths to the Megalopolis, Some Things Stay the Same" has an incredible visual impact.
