Riga-Seoul, 2017

Lazy Mike gallery was founded in 2017 by Mikhail Ovcharenko and Tatiana Melnikova. For three years the gallery organized local and international pop-up shows. In 2020 the gallery opened its space. In October 2022 the gallery relocated to Riga. Lazy Mike gallery new branch is scheduled to be opened this autumn in Seoul. Lazy Mike works with 12 artists. Gallery supported and organized multiple museum and gallery shows for Lazy Mike artists around the world. The gallery has always been actively participating in international art fairs including Art Los Angeles Contemporary, NADA New York, Bordeaux Art+Design, ExpoChicago, Art Busan, KIAF, Art021 etc. International connections are very important for Lazy Mike as we believe that no matter what’s happening in the world the main role of art is to connect people and to help to get rid of the borders. Lazy Mike gallery plans to continue to support and introduce our artists to Europe and the rest of the world.
