In October, a new gallery, Flor et Lavr, quietly opened in Granatny Lane. Harper's Bazaar was told about it by its creator, a fan of the Russian North and the author of the clothing brand of the same name, Frol Burimsky.

“On the one hand, traveling across Russia and the world,

I have met very talented artists on numerous occasions, and it often surprised me that some of them were not well known and recognized. On the other hand, for the past few years I have also been engaged in the selection of antiques and design items for private clients from Qatar. Therefore, the opening of the gallery is both an old dream and an impulse of the soul. It all started quite recently with a fateful meeting with the St. Petersburg sculptor of Moldovan origin Valery Bytka. Right now his exhibition "Moldavian Sun over the Neva" is being held in the gallery.

“The exhibition is based on limestone sculptures

Valeriy Bytka works not only with form, but also with color, literally "pulling out" yellow, purple, red and blue blotches from the stone and including them in his compositions. Thanks to this material, Valery Konstantinovich fell in love with St. Petersburg itself, and some of his works literally became a part of city history. For example, the stones from which they were made used to be part of the facing of the Vladimir Cathedral, the famous music store on the Nevsky, or the bastions of the Peter and Paul Fortress. By the way, Valery's works are in the collection of the Russian Museum and in private collections in Russia and abroad."

“The gallery's upcoming projects are also dedicated to sculpture

I am especially attracted by women sculptors, what are our great Soviet compatriots worth! The new exhibition will open at the end of November, this time we will present the works of Marina Spivak and Alexander Pozin. I was amazed at how their impressive and serious works are filled with joy, irony and even eroticism. What's next? We do not want to dwell on the offline space, so the next projects will take place at several sites at once, and after the new year we will definitely launch Flor et Lavr Gallery online."
