Spotlight on Innovation and Creativity

As a passionate collector of Modern and Contemporary Art and Design, in addition to our well-established auction business, I also place increasing efforts to make TAJAN a destination place for discovery and defense of art. At TAJAN ARTSTUDIO, we host innovative cultural events and bring together all those who create, defend and love art: artists, collectors, curators and gallerists.

As early as 2004, we initiated and hosted regularly at Tajan the program “The Artist and his Supporters”. This program brought together during unique events many of those creating, defending and promoting innovative art and design: artists, designers, curators, collectors, gallerists and journalists. This early program has now evolved and greatly developed leading to the creation of a separate entity and brand, Tajan ArtStudio. Through artist focused and thematic exhibitions presented several times a year, Tajan ArtStudio has now become a creative trendsetter. It is now a rich source to discover in Paris local and international new, emerging talent and rediscover overlooked or forgotten artistic movements and individual artists.

LIGHT HUNTERS - Exhibition September 22-29, 2017

We are proud to begin our fall season, 2017 by returning to Cluj, the now mythical city in Romania which during the past ten years has become a well known and highly respected source for generating contemporary talent. After being a pioneer in helping discover and promote “Cluj” and what it represents, we are delighted to feature now two exceptional young artists, Robert Fekete and Sergiu Toma who are focusing on the magic and ephemeral power of light.

ROBERT FEKETE

Robert Fekete is concerned with what he calls a “fake romanticism”. He draws his inspiration from art history, and from artists such as Caspar David Friedrich, Edvard Munch or Michelangelo Pistoletto. His work focuses on people and nature, on people and certain situations, on the distance between desire and possibility. More recently, he became interested in the idea of projection, light and visionary. His paintings show subjects constantly caught in the act of being spectators, rather than being active participants.

SERGIU TOMA

The presumably “casual” scenes of Sergiu Toma seem interlocked with partially remembered dreams, where the beholder’s viewpoint becomes an integral part of the painting. An atmosphere of nostalgia and mystery is inherent in Sergiu’s images; familiar objects carry symbolic meanings and non-human forms are often used as objects of displacement, to bring up issues that cannot be expressed forthrightly.

KARL HORST HÖDICKE, Ich Bin Ein Berliner - February, 2017

Tajan ArtStudio presents an exhibition entitled "Ich bin in Berliner".

Considered a precursor of neo-expressionism, Karl-Horst Hödicke is the “father” of the New Fauves, an artistic movement that participates in the revival of German art in the 1980s. 
The history of the German capital was revealed throughout his work. Karl-Horst Hödicke is extremely attached to this city: "For me, the one who travels the world in search of a particular place, will inevitably land in Berlin. I think you can always see in the city what I have tried to show in my paintings ".
