AGBU Young Professionals of London are proud to host their first Art Exhibition: Resonance x Relevance.
Karnik Gallery is a new platform that represents contemporary artists whose approach draws from or refers to the artistic traditions of the past, while producing work that is innovative and challenging within today’s market.
The gallery initiative was set up in 2019 by Mark Keshishian, an emerging art dealer and curator based in London, specialised in bringing the past and present together, in response to his passion for both the works of the old masters and contemporary artists of today.
Resonance X Relevance is an ambitious debut featuring artists such as Mouna Rebeiz, Lino Lago, Hiro Ando, Marc Guiragosian, Raffi Tokatlian and Guido de Pascale. The exhibition hopes to demystify the old masters and bridge the gap between a reverence for the past and an appetite for the contemporary. It aims to surprise collectors, audiences, gallerists and artists alike by challenging the associations that one may have with old masters, illustrating that they have a tremendous role to play in contemporary art.
Mark has worked on sales at Mayfair’s hignell gallery and on art auctions by Banque Libano Française and Sotheby’s at the Saatchi Gallery.
In extension to his gallery endeavors, Mark has been heavily involved within the special make-up effects world, garnering the attention of several academy and BAFTA award winning studios, for his sculptural talents.
