This book accompanies a large-scale retrospective of Leonhard Lapin’s work in the Kumu Art Museum (09.02.–13.05.2018). The exhibition and the book entitled Leonhard Lapin. Void and Space continues the Estonian Art Classics series. With this series of large-scale solo shows and distinguished-looking books in cloth binding, the Kumu Art Museum pays homage to iconic Estonian artists of the second half of the 20th century whose works have had a profound infl uence on the development of Estonian art.
The Estonian Art Classics series by the Art Museum of Estonia presents the works of the artists Tõnis Vint, Raul Meel, Jüri Okas and Andres Tolts. Leonhard Lapin, a multitalented creative person, who has been active as an architect, graphic artist, painter, illustrator, sculptor, performance artist, author, editor and teacher is a part of the same generation and the same circle of friends as the artists mentioned above. Lapin’s artistic career of fi fty years is characterised by dynamism: he was one of the proponents of Estonian Pop art and the leading representative of the Neo-avant-garde, as well as embracing the complexity and contradiction of Postmodernist art. He was fascinated by the diversity and richness of life and every expression of creativity. Leonhard Lapin, who is Professor Emeritus of the Estonian Academy of Arts, has been a Visiting Professor at the Helsinki University of Technology, the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and the University of Tartu; he was a long-time editor of the architectural magazine Ehituskunst, and he had a literary alter ego, the cult poet Albert Trapeezh.
