Tendergold Gallery was first introduced to IAMA in early 2018. The name pays homage to our ever-so-funky neighboring Tenderloin District. While it can undeniably be seen as dark and gritty, it also hosts some of San Francisco's most exciting underground art scenes and nightlife. #tendergold celebrates this by bringing art to the light of day from emerging artists, both internationally and from the Bay Area .
Opening reception: Friday, January 11, 2019, 5 - 8 PM
January 7 - February 9, 2019
Anton Ermakov is a self-taught painter working primarily in oil, splitting his time between figurative and landscape subjects. Based in Montreal, he has recently been included in shows held by the Society of Canadian Artists and the Federation of Canadian Artists, taking the Grand First Place Prize at the latter organization's Annual International Representational Show for his painting "Embracing your Dreams Dunnigan."
While the figurative work focuses on capturing thoughts and glances, the landscapes are more adventurous, meticulously layering abstract shapes in order to create highly stylized, boldly colored vistas that leave room for interpretation.
