    East meets West and fuses in the works of Igor de Kansky. The immediate and obvious evidence of this fusion is his use of the ancient Oriental technique of lacquer to create paintings that fall within the visual mainstream of abstract expressionism. His working environment has been the West, Paris and California. His technique is from the East but his heritage is Byzantine and this gives the paintings a special mystical glow. Beyond the fact that Igor de Kansky is a superb craftsman using an unusual and difficult technique at a time when many artists have discarded craftsmanship, he is also a deeply sensitive artist making a statement in today's terms.
