Russian artist: cartoons are protest, not pop 

Claire Oliver Gallery is currently featuring a site-specific installation by the Russian artist Georgii “Gosha” Ostretsov — who has been part of the Moscow art scene since the mid-1980s. Eclectic, and as visually overwhelming as it is enticing, “Coolville” is comprised of painted, mural-sized canvas comic strips that sparkle through vivid color and form. Arranged along the walls, suspended from the ceiling, and contrasted with the occasional life-size figurative sculpture, the paintings have not only taken over the gallery’s exhibition space; they’ve transformed it into a science fiction wonderland.
