Tütar gallery, the newly built space in Tallinn Noblessner area, is pleased to announce its first representation agreement with Urmas Lüüs. The artist’s solo exhibition will open at the Tütar Gallery in early December.
Urmas Lüüs focuses his artistic work on the combination of blacksmithing, sculpture, light, sound, classical craftsmanship, and different materials. He seeks common ground between seemingly disparate elements, creating comprehensive works that transcend disciplines and mediums. The artist rarely works with individual objects; he is interested in creating holistic compositions composed of hybrid forms.
Urmas Lüüs’s recent solo exhibitions include “The Owl Hooted and the Samovar Hummed Continuously” (with Hans-Otto Ojaste) at HOP Gallery, “Overpopulated Solitude” on the Independent Dance Stage, and “Everything is Connected to Itself” at Haapsalu City Gallery. This year, the artist has also participated in group exhibitions such as “As Gaudy as a Butterfly” in Valencia, Spain, and “Polyphonos” in Munich, Germany.
Urmas Lüüs is a graduate of the Estonian Academy of Arts, specializing in jewelry and blacksmithing, he also instructs students at the Estonian Academy of Arts, the University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy’s Department of Performing Arts, and the University of Gothenburg’s Department of Metal Arts. He has previously taught at the Rietveld Academy in the Netherlands, the China Academy of Art, Silpakorn University in Thailand, and Hiko Mizuno College in Japan.
Tütar is a contemporary art gallery primarily representing younger generation artists based in Tallinn, showcasing their work both domestically and internationally. The gallery is located at Vesilennuki 24 in Tallinn’s Noblessner Port area and is open from Thursday to Sunday. Admission to gallery exhibitions is free to the public.
