This is a monochrome pink painting with a hard edge black frame made with spray paint. An ambient meditative composition caught inside a strict black frame. The style is the fusion of color field and geometric hard edge abstraction.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Daniil

Daniil Alikov is interested in the relationship between machine and human. The work is clean and contemporary in its minimal style and bold geometric shapes; however, it also uses the visual language of decay. Together, the rough texture, rusted edges, and frayed bits of canvas are evocative of industrialization, cities, and factories. Mass culture and its shiny technological products often hide the reality of its own production, the waste it creates, and the distance it puts between humans and their natural environment. Daniil’s work captures this contraction, where order conceals chaos, and beauty is found in deterioration. Daniil uses found materials in his work, such as steel, wood, rubber and plastic. With a graphic, street art style the compositions he creates seem to speak a secret language. It is as if the materials we discard have come back to tell us something, reminding us that everything we create remains a part of us.
