The Daring Abstracts of Salon de Refusées

Discover a realm where colors clash with shadows, and every stroke tells a story of resilience and vision. “Salon de Refusées – Abstractions” is a journey through the heart of abstract art, celebrating the power of rejection to fuel creativity and expression.

In this exclusive showcase, we delve into the depths of the unseen, from the subtle profundity of Xiayi Su’s night photography to the vibrant enigma of Visithra Manikam’s abstract faces. Lakshmi Nagaraj’s mixed media work bursts with uncharted joy, while Bilge Ugursu’s dramatic paintings whisper the mysteries of silence. And through Nikolina Webers’s canvas, we experience the unadulterated delight of color and form. Join us as we transcend the traditional and embrace the experimental, highlighting the stories of artists who turn obscurity into opportunity. Their works, a testament to the overlooked and the undervalued, invite you to explore the myriad facets of abstract art.

A Bold Take on Misogyny, AI Risks, and Reality

A visionary world of digital art waits for you at the Salon de Refusées, where three trailblazing artists harness the power of artificial intelligence to redefine boundaries and challenge perceptions.

Zitong Zhao’s “NONSENSE” and Anastasia Lukomskaya’s “I Cannot Resist” blend daily life with resistance against conformity. Experience this melding of technology and human creativity, celebrating the unique and unconventional. Join us at the Salon de Refusées to witness a unique fusion of technology and human experience, where the rejected is celebrated and the unconventional is the norm.
