Where? Moscow Museum of Modern Art. Moscow, Russia.
When? Now, until 25th May 2014.
The first solo exhibition of Russian street artist Pavel Pukhov, best known as Pasha 183, since his death in 2013.
This exciting exhibition is one of the first projects in which the MMOMA and street art combine to highlight the oeuvre of a particular artist. Pavel created spray painted murals on public structures as well as using the medium of film, always with a strong political message. He has been likened to street artists Keith Haring and Banksy. Like Banksy he kept his true identity a secret, but Pavel's work has a dark seriousness, expressed more visually than that of the the renowned British virtuoso.
