Internationally Collected Fine Arts Painter, Metrov, exhibits in new Mammoth Lakes contemporary art gallery – Opening Gala: 6PM, December 21st.  Exhibit continues thru February 3rd, 2003

Controversial, unorthodox, rude, brilliant, confusing – these are just some of the words used to describe the art of Metrov, fine arts painter in Mammoth Lakes, CA.   Metrov who grew up in the small ‘dairy town’ [as he likes to call it] of Ontario, California, honed his fine arts tools in New York City during the decade of the ‘70’s.  He shared lofts with film directors Abel Ferrara and Francis Delia, and lived down the block from Andy Warhol.  It was the era of Club 54 and the Sex Pistols.  During that time, he also traveled to Europe and studied in Rome, Italy.  He recalls sobbing amidst a crowd of tourists as he stood looking up at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  “I’d been studying and copying Michelangelo drawings since I was three years old, and there I was seeing those works live for the first time.  It was overwhelming.”

Metrov has exhibited in New York, Rome, Los Angeles, and Sun Valley, Idaho.  His work has been collected by foreign dignitaries, major art collectors and celebrities such as Mick Jagger, the late Margaux Hemingway, Bianca Jagger, Ben Vereen and Mr. Patterson Sims, former Curator of Painting at the Whitney Museum in New York.

Metrov's early work was praised for its graceful realism.  Later, his paintings became primitive, and for a while, he even experimented with total abstraction.  His current exhibit at the new Clark Contemporary Gallery in Mammoth Lakes is a culmination of many years of artistic evolution.  His paintings express a unique combination of his previous styles in a manner which some European critics call 'Termite Art'.  Also on exhibit will be some (50) experimental art videos.  Besides painting, Metrov is also a screenwriter, novelist, filmmaker and owns Mediashox.com -- complete new media services, a company which produces web sites, TV commercials, interactive CD Roms and graphic design.  He is currently developing the feature film EDEN_mx3.
