"TIGER TRAINING FOR BEGINNERS:" Features artist Kevin Berlin’s

BERLIN'S solo exhibition "TIGER TRAINING FOR BEGINNERS" features more than 100 new paintings inspired by the Artist’s experiences working with tiger and lion trainers at the Ukrainian National Circus. In addition to major larger then life canvases painted in Kiev, the exhibition is highlighted with a “live art performance” on May 17, the evening of the Private View.

Works include “Into The Cage,” “Tiger Snack #2,” “Хода Hет! Хищники (Danger: Carnivores),” “Lion King,” “Skeleton King,” “Snake Lady,” “Monkey Trainer,” and an installation entitled: “Nudo e Crudo (Raw And Naked),”

“This exhibit may be the last time you ever see a tiger, if we don’t take action!”
-- Artist Kevin Berlin.

“There are only 3200 tigers left alive in the wild. I hope these paintings encourage viewers to take action and get involved in a world-wide movement to protect the global population of tigers, which continues to decline.” –Artist Kevin Berlin.
