Dagestani artist Eduard Puterbrot at the Sharjah Art Foundation
Translating the symbols of ancient rituals into modern pieces
The Sharjah Art Foundation presents Eduard Puterbrot: Between my East and my West; a selection of works by the late Dagestani artist, tracing his journey and work spanning two decades.
While central to his work are Dagestani folk tales and culture, Puterbrot depicts the balance between East and West and uses various styles and techniques, including theatre and stage design, to portray these differences. He served as Chief Designer at the AP Salavatov Kumyk Music and Drama Theatre and Dagestan State Russian Gorki Drama Theatre for almost two decades, and even though he developed his own personal artistic style by translating the symbols of ancient rituals into modern art, Puterbrot painted primarily for his viewers.
