Sunday @ 12pm slt – Kultivate Loft Gallery Presents Slatan Dryke

Join us at Kultivate Loft Gallery, on Sunday, March 21, 2021 from 12 to 2pm slt for the grand opening of Slatan Drykes new exhibition, “My Greece, My Cats.”

Below is Slatan Dryke’s official biography:

“Photography… My Photography is not an Art Expression. It’s only a way to bust from myself… however, being closer to my Kernel”. – Slatan Dryke –

“The suspended moment intervenes during the action, and suddenly it blows up in a sharp lapse into yore”. – Slatan Dryke –

Slatan is Italian and he grew up surrounded by the best Art expression at 360°, and probably the best in the world.

Slatan loves Art in every form, but he is most fond of paintings and sculptures, following his classical education. Slatan is also a photographer in RL.

Always the traveler, Slatan loves to wander across the grid, finding new pockets of beauty for his pictures, thanks to the creativity and imagination of fellow residents.

Slatan is a perfectionist in taking his pictures, never missing a single detail. The ratio, the framing and light are quite an obsession, until finally the right image is in his viewfinder. Slatan rarely uses an editor to modify his pictures, so he likes to say his works are “natural”.

On the other hand, Slatan admits to have limited skills in building, so he creates his sculptures, not following a real scheme, but only indulging his instinct and his love for abstract forms, which are often slight but become alive with a creative use of textures, lights and movements. Slatan likes to use old-school SL building methods, with a preference for prims in their multiple aspects rather than mesh.

His buildings, sculptures and photographies have been exhibited in Art Galleries and at a number of main SL events:: University of Western Australia (UWA), BURN2’s, Santalarity, Burnal Equinox, Conception; SL Birthday, Raglan Shire’s ArtWalk, Art in the Park, Emphatic Eccentricia, Seaside Gallery, Oxford @rts Gallery. Pop-Up Art, Cape Able Art Gallery, VWBPE (Virtual Worlds Best Practice in Education), Ethnographia, Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA), Kultivate Windlight Art Gallery, Holly Kay Art Park, Phoenix Artists Collaboration, Ani’s Gallery, La Maison d’Aneli, Argentum Artem, ArtCare Gallery, International Photography Festival, One Billion Rising, Relay for Life, Rock your Rack, Second Life Endowment for The Arts (SLEA), and many others including collaborations with artists in Second Life and Educational Institutions in Real Life as EduNation and Dublin Institute of Technology.
