KIR Gallery is excited to introduce the limited edition print series, “Art Your Journey” by artist Sergey Kir. The series features open edition digitally hand-signed and numbered prints by the renowned American artist, Sergey Kir.
Widely recognized for his groundbreaking work as a digital artist and graphic designer, Kir has made history by holding exhibitions on fashion runways and founding the Conceptivism art movement. His work generally focuses on cultural and social commentaries on current discourse and pop culture.
The “Art Your Journey” series of works by Sergey Kir, recently lauded by a British art gallery Metropolis Contemporary as “revolutionizing abstraction, ” is the focus of this open edition release. Kir initially showcased these works during NYFW Fall 2023 via the Runway 7 Fashion.
The revolutionary exhibition took place at the iconic Sony Hall in New York, in collaboration with the designer brand @Exteasy.Lingerie. That event not only rewrote the history books of art and fashion but also garnered global attention, with close to a million viewers on YouTube.
Kir’s groundbreaking show marked a historic moment as the first ever to present a full art exhibition on the fashion runway as the main act, highlighting Kir’s belief that Art and Fashion complete each other.
To further celebrate and promote the release of the open edition digitally hand-signed prints, Sergey Kir is set to perform and exhibit his finest works in three extraordinary shows this February, showcasing the dynamic fusion of art and fashion.
These not-to-be-missed events include:
- MODELx Showcase On February 7th at 6 pm – [Event Details] (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/787399772917 aff=ebdsshios)

Art and Fashion = Love and Desire Manifesto
In celebration of the unveiling of these artworks, Kir penned a manifesto, capturing the essence and vision behind this collection and titled it “Art and Fashion = Love and Desire”
In the dissonance of superficiality and excess, we revolt against the fossilized decrees of the fashion aristocracy. Behold the self-inflated icons, presiding over an assembly of intellectual poverty, oblivious to the richness of the 300 years of innovation in Art and Finance.
The fashion oligarchy stagnates in the monotonous drone of the runway, where models march in the predictable cadence of solitary conformity. Gone are the days of blind adherence to this sartorial orthodoxy. We, the Fashion and Art futurists, renounce the archaic catwalk rituals. No longer shall models traverse the runway one by one, imprisoned by the chains of conformity.
No longer will the spotlight be solely on showcasing designs as the main act. Our manifesto heralds a rebellion against the mundane, envisioning a future where the very essence of presentation is revolutionized.
Contemporary fashion rituals stand exposed as relics of a bygone era. As we discard the shackles of conventional runway displays, we embrace a kaleidoscopic evolution, where creativity knows no bounds. The relentless march of models becomes a relic of the past, replaced by a dynamic, immersive experience that transcends the mundane confines of the traditional fashion showcase.
Our call echoes through the corridors of couture, challenging the myopic vision that has gripped the industry for too long. The future of Fashion and Art lies not in the footsteps of solitary models but in the rhythmic pulse of innovation, breaking free from the chains that bind us to a monochromatic past.
Stand with us, fellow fashion renegades, as we forge a path towards a future where the runway is a canvas of limitless expression, where Art takes center stage in the show, and conformity is but a distant memory.
