ALINA KUNITSYNA @ ARTSPACE MAGAZINE

10 of the Best New Artists at the Untitled Art Fair

Op Art, by several market indicators, is having a comeback these days—just look at the renewed affection for Victor Vasarely. That makes it a ripe time for an artist like Alina Kunitsyna, whose optically beguiling paintings at the fair are so convincingly three-dimensional they require a 180-degree inspection just to make sure that your eye has been deceived. Identified by her Austrian dealers as a 42-year-old White Russian artist, Kunitsyna—who specializes in well-rendered trompe-l’oeil paintings of ridged fabric—made these geometric compositions specially for the fair, with the blue-tinted green echoing the colors of the ocean splashing outside the tent.
