The Chokako Collection: A Journey of Colors

New Online Exhibition

We are delighted to present an extraordinary collection of recent but unusual paintings by Abed Abdi, all of which have been created in the remote village of Chokako. This remarkable showcase unveils captivating works of Abed Abdi, who hails from the vibrant city of Haifa in the Middle East, a place with a starkly different color palette, where the sea sparkles in shades of blue and the sky gleams in silver.

Despite the dramatic contrast between his place of origin and his second home in Chokako, Abed’s artistic brilliance knows no bounds. These paintings were born from his repeated stays in the wine-growing village, starting in 2014, where he embraced a new artistic direction that diverged from his usual style. Instead of seeking to capture the social and political realities of his native land, Abed’s attention in these artworks turns to the picturesque landscapes of Chokako.

Through these artworks, Abed skillfully brings to life the enchanting beauty of the landscape, depicting the fields before and after the harvest, the charming village houses, and the breathtaking scenery between the Bakony and Vertes mountains. What sets these works apart is the tranquil ambiance, and Abed’s masterful use of colors, reminiscent of the ever-changing nature of the environment. His palette captures the thousand shades of green and yellow that reflect the constantly blowing gentle wind, which moves the clouds and alters the play of light in mesmerizing ways.

On display is Abed Abdi’s exceptional ability to find inspiration and create masterpieces that transcend geographical boundaries. With every brushstroke, he connects two seemingly distant worlds, inviting us to see the harmony and beauty that can be found in the diversities of nature and life. Let the colors and artistry transport you to new realms of contemplation and appreciation.
