Havana-born Juan Miguel Pozo as well as the Russian artist Inna Artemova both show in their artworks half-abstract, architectural objects and structures. The paintings and works on paper of both artists not only combine locations like Berlin, Moscow and Havana but also characteristics of the old and new world, of the East and West, of Utopia and Dystopia as local and temporal entanglements.
Inna Artemova was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. From 1989 until 1995 she studied architecture at the Moscow Architectural Institute.
In 1995 she got her diploma in architecture and the second architectural price of the Russian Federation. Her artworks are held in several private and public collections. Inna Artemova lives and works in Berlin since 1998.
Juan Miguel Pozo Cruz was born 1967 in Holguin, Cuba. During his time as an art student at the University of Havana a German journalist discovered him in 1994, drawing the attention of friendly artists like Konrad Klapheck on the Cuban painter. These artists advocated for Pozo‘s scholarship at the Art Academy Düsseldorf in Germany, enabling him to emigrate to Europe. The artworks of Juan Pozo are part of such renowned international art collections as Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Ella Fontanals Cisneros, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Falckenberg, Ludwig, Nachmann and Sean Penn and many more.
