Permanent Pepperstein wall-painting at the Hermitage

The Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg has added a wall-painting by Pepperstein to its permanent collection. The work is called ‘The Convict’ (Уголовник). The painting was originally produced on canvas for his solo exhibition at Pace London. When the renowned curator Kasper Konig saw it, he asked Pepperstein to reproduce it on the wall at Mainfesta 10 in 2014. Hermitage liked it so much they decided to acquire it from the artist and keep it permanently on display. (The original is now in a private collection).
