Catch it before it closes!
This exhibition entitled Unbelievable by 10 year old artist, Mikail Akar, is set to close on May 31st. It is currently located at Modus10 – Rolf Benz Flagship Store in Soho and is definitely worth checking out while you can.
For contemporary art lovers, Akar’s work is very reminiscent of artists by the likes of Jackson Pollock, Jean- Michel Michael Basquiat, and Gerhard Richter. With an impressive resume already at such a young age, the painter has had notable painting sessions such as at dawn on top of the empire state building and recently custom painted the hood of a Rolls Royce. His art was a part of the Art Expo New York fine art fair this year and he also currently has an exhibition at the Grand Hotel Schloss Bensberg in Germany also closing at the end of May.
