The Fifth Librarian, 2013, Sanya Kantarovsky

Moscow-born, New York-based artist Sanya Kantarovsky makes videos and sculptures, but is best known for his narrative paintings which draw on themes including memory, artistic genius and his childhood. The Fifth Librarian features his signature calligraphic style depicting spare, almost cartoon-like figures emerging from and disappearing behind lattice-like structures that evoke the window grates of his childhood home.
