Okapi

Okapi Gallery is an exhibition and studio space in the heart of the Tallinn old town specialised in photography and glass art. Fine-art photography is presented at the Okapi Gallery in a resident form and constantly changing exhibitions are focused on an artist’s collective body of works or series. Hopefully each carefully printed, framed and conceptualised photo will, for its new owner, become a window into the artist’s and OKAPI’s cognition of the world.

Okapi has held exhibitions and sales of several Estonian photographers and among them are the two we will be showcasing at the Photographic Art Fair.

 

Riina Varol is a photography artist born in Pärnu and currently living and working in Tallinn. Riina has been a photographer since 2007 and this includes cooperation with well known media publications and brands. Riina’s photos have been published in Cosmopolitan, FHM and Italian Vogue. Her last personal exhibition was called “Hairy Vision” and part of it is still on display at the gallery.

 

Kaupo Kikkas is best known for his photographic works of music and musicians. His photos illustrate the covers of many books and records. In addition to his music photos, Kaupo has earned international recognition with photo series of cemeteries, an abandoned cinema in Egypt, daily life of coal miners and he has even trekked the Amazon rain forests with his camera. The author of seven personal exhibitions is now working on his new 2016 project. His latest exhibition “Treescapes” from 2014 is partially on display at the OKAPI Gallery.
