Dara Gallopin

DARA GALLOPIN IS AN INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTIST OF SWISS-IRANIAN HERITAGE, BORN IN 1982 AND RAISED IN GENEVA, SWITZERLAND. HE HAS SPENT HIS ADULT YEARS LIVING IN DIVERSE LOCATIONS ACROSS THE GLOBE, INCLUDING ENGLAND, CHINA, NEW YORK, AND THROUGHOUT WESTERN EUROPE, AND IS CURRENTLY BASED IN THE UKRAINE. THIS INNATE INTERCULTURALISM AND NOMADIC LIFE HAS IMBUED GALLOPIN WITH A DEEP APPRECIATION FOR DIVERSITY AND A BOUNDLESS APPROACH TO HIS PRACTICE.

GALLOPIN S MULTIDISCIPLINARY ART RANGES FROM GEOMETRIC ABSTRACT DRAWINGS INFLUENCED BY HIS FORMAL TRAINING AT L ECOLE CANTONALE D ART DE LAUSANNE (ECAL), WHERE HE GAINED HIS BFA, TO SCULPTURES SUCH AS HOVERBOARD (2009) AND NEVER GIVE UP (2010), AND MORE RECENT FIGURATIVE PAINTINGS. EACH PIECE IN HIS DIVERSE BODY OF WORK PROVIDES NARRATIVES THAT SPEAK TO A GROUNDED AND VERY HUMAN, VERY RECENT EXPERIENTIAL CONTINUUM OF MULTI-DIMENSIONAL GROWTH AND CREATION. GALLOPIN S CULTURAL IDENTITY IS THAT OF A MODERN NOMAD, WORKING INDISCRIMINATELY WITH ALL AND ANY TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE, WORKING ACROSS DIVERSE MEDIA AND LIVING ACROSS BORDERS AND LANGUAGES.

THE DIVERSITY OF GALLOPIN S WORK, AND HIS PRACTICE, IS POWERFULLY DISTILLED IN HIS UNTITLED (TRIPTYCH) 2020, WHICH DEMONSTRATES THE MATURATION OF THIS CUMULATIVE AND INCLUSIVE PRACTICE AS HE INTEGRATES AND REVISITS BOTH PREVIOUSLY EXPLORED ELEMENTS AND PROCESSES. BY REFERENCING, SUBVERTING AND REIMAGINING HIS PAST WORKS HE GIVES RISE TO A LINEAGE THAT IS YET TO EMERGE. THESE WORK
