Alicia Dubnyckyj Exhibition

Published on August 3rd 2005.


Scenes of Manchester tookcentre stage at the Artlounge on Thursday evening as another up and coming artist has her work presented.

The entire gallery in the Triangle was transformed into an array of Alicia Dubnyckyj’s ‘Metropolis’ collection.

The last time we went to an Artlounge exhibition, the exhibit pieces began flying off the walls due to surprised visitors getting their wallets out and buying the items. The Artlounge spend a daft amount of time sourcing new talent (they’ve got an entire special sourcing department hell bent on scouring the earth for groundbreaking talent) which means the majority of stuff they display hasn’t been seen before, including people like Temper and David White.

Despite being a scouser, White in particular has now become front page news in the contemporary art world, with his stuff selling like hot cakes for a packet down in London. Temper is now showing nearby after having his work picked up in the likes of Harvey Nichols and Zinc Bar. David Dickinson would have a field day in this place – there’s some real Bobby Dazzlers.

Like houses, if your buying some of this art in Manchester instead of London, you’ll find it in these places slightly cheaper, so now’s the time to find yourself some investment opportunities.

Back to what was on on Thursday night…..

Alicia has been working on cityscapes for some time now, the likes of London, Hong Kong, New York and Birmingham have all been subject of her particularly busy brush. Now she’s turned her attention to Manchester, with approximately 15 pieces on show on Thursday evening. The changing face of Manchester is significantly represented on canvas in her own unique style, painting a pretty picture of our city than the scaffolding that seems to be surrounding us at the moment does.

Having been trained at the central hub of Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and then the Royal College of Art in London, it’s no wonder that hustling and bustling cities have caught Alicia’s eye. The investment potential of her work has already been picked up in the likes of the Independent and Financial Times broadsheets – as quick to recognise a potential talent as the Artlounge are to pounce on it and stick it up on the walls.

Alicia says: “Manchester is a city of such architectural distinction, one that seems to challenge convention, yet evolves firmly in the foundation of tradition. I am determined to capture more than the obvious landmarks, I want to find the details, the little things that help to make up this special city.

The exhibition itself runs until the 12th August.
