David Sharashidze, Kyiv-based artist of Georgian origin whose imagination creates his own distinct world – with all people having iconic similarities and all items having perfected forms. But what makes him really different and easily recognizable is colors on his paintings: rich, dense, magnetic, melting. He once admitted: "Color is the foundation, the beginning which fills the picture with emotional depth and power. Laconic line, restrained and contemplative composition… My credo is to see beauty, enjoy it, and share it".
ArtAsters is Asters' CSR project established in 2009 dedicated to supporting, showcasing, promoting and popularizing the contemporary Ukrainian art and providing opportunity to artists for exhibiting their works in the spectacular Asters' office for the enjoyment of the firm's employees, clients and guests.
