With galleries in three bustling hotspots – New York City, Berlin, and London – Strychnin Gallery is a playground for artists from all around the globe. It is a place where collaboration is encouraged, new projects are constantly developed and creativity is the one and only thing that truly counts.

Owned by charismatic curator Yasha Young, Strychnin is dedicated to presenting emerging American artists to the European art world and vice versa. It features a variety of artists with particular individual styles rather than artists belonging to a collective “hip” movement. If you insist on putting a label on them, try lowbrow turned highbrow, pop surrealism or fantastic realism among others.

The gallery participates in major international art fairs on a regular basis, including Bridge Art Fair, Liste, or Art Fair 21 in Cologne, which appointed gallery owner Yasha Young to its selection committee in 2008.

A fools paradise in the clouds- is that where we’re going when we search the clouds for familiar objects? This action, coined precisely

It’s the year 2013, if you’re reading this Earth has shockingly survived the Mayan prediction and prophetic date of December 21st, 2012.

Or was the cataclysm of 2012 a positive physical and/or spiritual transformation for humanity. Be as it may, hopefully this day will mark the beginning of
