Another exhibition of the artist Max Haaze’s creative heritage has been opened in the KINO Gallery.
The second personal retrospective exhibition includes more than 30 paintings, as well as graphic art, reliefs, and alto relievi.
The last painting created by the artists is dated to 1998; however it became possible to life the veil from his life and creativity only after his death.
The real name of the artist is Mikhail Mikhaylovich Zanegin (1938 – 2013).
He never showed his works to anybody, never exhibited them independently or sold them, and never participated in creative informal associations.
Crudely rejected by some gallery owner, who literally told him “You can even leave it unfolded, nobody needs it today”- the artist was morally crushed. Other gallery owners were also indifferent to his creativity.
Max Haaze’s self-portrait is the only opportunity to get an idea of what the artist looked like. There are neither photos nor documents left. Max Haaze is referred to as an unrecognized “Russian Dali”.
The exhibition runs till October 4.
