NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Misha De-Stroyev in Chelsea International Photography Competition . The exhibition opens January 27, 2019 and runs through February 7, 2019 with an opening reception on Thursday, February 1 from 6-8 pm.
French-Russian artist Misha De-Stroyev’s beguiling works capture the grandeur and enormity of the natural world. Working with predominantly landscape digital photography, De-Stroyev often immortalizes his world from an aerial perspective. Sweeping canals bordered by crisp geometric rooftop clusters, a lone surfer paddling into a crest of tumultuous emerald surf, or a football field unusually plastered amidst an untamed expanse of forestry and snow-capped peaks are all rendered with highly-saturated lucidity and a mastery of balancing both texture and composition. The artist is currently based in Paris.

About the Exhibition
The Chelsea International Photography Competition
The Chelsea International Photography Competition exhibition features the diverse works of 28 professional and amateur photographers. The works on view were selected by a distinguished panel of jurors and convey the astonishing breadth and global nature of the photographic medium. Through expressive portraits, still lifes, and conceptual works, the exhibition conveys a unique perspective on the tradition of photography and how the medium conveys ideas, creates fictions, or captures attitudes.
