NanoArt Solo Show at Espacio Kubiko Gallery

During the month of July, Cris Orfescu is showing NanoArt works in a solo exhibit at Espacio Kubiko gallery, Madrid, Spain. Orfescu's work is a reflection of the new technological revolution, and is aimed to raise the public awareness about the Nanotechnology and its impact on our lives. The Romanian-born American artist founded the NanoArt movement a few years ago, and is showing his works in galleries all over the world.

NanoArt is a new art discipline related to the micro or nanosculptures created by artists or/and scientists through chemical or/and physical processes and visualized with powerful research tools like scanning electron microscopes and atomic force microscopes. The scientific images of these structures are captured from the advanced microscopes mentioned above and further processed using different artistic techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for a large audience. NanoArt should not be confused with Microphotography which is performed using an optical microscope with a photographic camera attached to it and renders flat images at low magnification. The depth and three dimensions achieved in NanoArt sets this imaging process apart from Photography where images are created by photons (particles of light) rather than by electrons (electrically charged particles) as in NanoArt. The electrons penetrate deeper inside the structure creating images with more depth, more natural 3D-look than the photographic images.

The Espacio Kubiko gallery is a new concept in exhibiting multidiscipline artistic creations and especially cutting-edge art. The virtual gallery space is divided in two rooms, and the artworks are widely promoted in mass media and specialized professional chanels. You can view Orfescu's show at:
