Bureau are delighted to offer two stunning new limited edition prints by Yelena Popova, on the occasion of her solo exhibition, 'Lobachevsky's Dream', at the gallery.

Priced at £250 each (unframed), Yelena has created two beautiful 5 colour / glaze screenprints, printed with pearlescent inks on high quality archival art paper.

Yelena was successfully been shortlisted from over 4,200 submissions for '100 Painters of Tomorrow', to discover the most exciting painters working globally today. Judged by some of the most prominent names in contemporary art, including painter Cecily Brown, curators Sir Norman Rosenthal, Yuko Hasegawa, Gregor Muir and Suzanne Cotter, and writer-critics Suzanne Hudson, Philip Tinari, Tony Godfrey and Barry Schwabsky.

Ossian Ward’s review for 'Time Out', of the recent Saatchi Gallery exhibition featuring her work, 'Gaiety Is The Most Outstanding Feature Of The Soviet Union', stated that: “balancing historical reference and the future of picture making, Yelena Popova is one of the best young painters working in Britain right now.”


Yelena Popova (b. 1978, Urals, Russia) graduated from MA Painting at the Royal College of Art in 2011. She works across a range of media, incorporating painting, installation, and video, in a practice that is underpinned by an interest in the concept of balance, discordant and harmonious. For 'Lobachevsky's Dream', Popova continues to engage with the materiality of painting, which is central to her practice, in conjunction with ideas of installation and display.

Her paintings have a graphic quality, featuring elliptical curves and repeated, rhythmic shapes, recalling the aesthetics of both Russian Constructivism and Minimalism. As abstraction they have an immediate tie to the twentieth century history of abstract painting. Yet Popova moves beyond the confines of this specific historic legacy, producing works that have the ability to speak and connect meaningfully to painting’s past and to the present.

Recent solo exhibitions include: The Portrait Gallery, Cole, London (2013); Portrait Gallery Withdrawn, as part of Abstract Possible, Eastside Projects, Birmingham; Olympic Throw, Zabludowicz Collection ‘Invites’, London; and Unnamed, Figge Von Rosen Gallery, Berlin (2012). Recent group exhibitions include: The Futures Of The Past, Kunst Raum Riehen, Basel; Group Show, Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles (2013); Gaiety Is The Most Outstanding Feature Of The Soviet Union, Saatchi Gallery, London; Red Mansion Prize, Royal Academy, London (2012); Bloomberg New Contemporaries, ICA, London and S1, Sheffield; The Bookmark Project, Nottingham Contemporary; Keep Doors and Passages Clear, White Columns, New York (2011); and Ztime, Era Foundation, Young Artists Biennale, Moscow (2010).

Popova has works in the Royal College of Art permanent collection, Saatchi Collection, Zabludowicz Collection, London, and a number of international private collections.
