This Friedrichshain outpost of Yasha Young’s Strychnin Gallery offers passage into a surreal and sometimes spooky wonderland.
The Strychnin Berlin—like its sister galleries in NYC and London—concentrates its curatorial efforts on young, emerging artists whose work ranges from fantastic realism and pop surrealism to lowbrow art, all of which have not yet been categorized under trendy art world monikers. The diversity of the artists is mirrored in their choice of media, with paintings and photographs sharing the gallery space with sculptures and installations.
In keeping with the vision of its founder, Strychnin not only emphasizes the individuality of its artists but also seeks to strengthen ties with Berlin’s creative community, often arranging for local DJs and musicians to liven up vernissages.
