Diaries and Faces introduces Dalip Kryeziu to Chicago!!
October 5th was a novel experience for many of the Hilton | Asmus guests. The city of Chicago gave Dalip a very warm welcome, while his faces adorning the walls of the gallery welcomed guests right back.
Our space was filled with many of Dalip's expressionist portraits, unraveling the unconscious for a memorable interpretation. Each piece had the ability to stop an individual dead in his or her tracks and a number of these people were hypnotized by the ambiguity of each painting. The colors of Dalip's works are visceral, bouncing off the canvas and attracting even people only walking past the gallery.
The moment you walk in, you are immersed in a world uniquely Dalip and more specifically, his 79 by 55 inches portrait of 'Father' and equally mystifying portrait of 'Son' hung directly in the middle of the gallery. Each piece is heavy with sentiment and thought that individuals thrive to tap into as they experienced the whole exhibition.
Friends and family of the Hilton | Asmus were thrilled to meet an international artist, such as Dalip and were both curious about his style and art. Conversations about his aesthetic, culture, and inspirations reverberated throughout the gallery and it was indeed, a night perfect for art lovers.
