Vancouver Gem & Mineral show featured guest of incredible artistry is German Kabirski. Kabirski was born in Kabir, a small Lezgi village in Caucasus region of southern Russia, now residing in Thailand as an artist who doesn’t play by the rules. Kabirski experiments with materials and forms a lot. He combines gems with everything, from silver, gold and wood to leather and reptile skeletons. The end result is quite far from traditional jewellery. Kabirski’s aesthetics exist outside of the common concepts of the beautiful and the ugly.

About German Kabirski:
“Tell everyone to go to hell. Don’t listen to anyone else, only yourself, and polish your technique as your own vision,” advises master jeweller German Kabirski. And that is just what the world-renowned, somewhat unhinged, artist has done: he’s thrown away the rulebook. The freak (as he calls himself) visionary has created a world without walls.
Kabirski was born in 1964, in Kabir, a small Lezgi village in Caucasus region of southern Russia, and raised in Moscow.
“I am not the owner of my work. I just give birth to the pieces and they go on their journey.” For Kabirski, each piece of his art only reaches its full potential when it finds the hand of its true keeper.
German Kabirski is coming with his new collection to Vancouver Gem & Mineral Show at PNE Forum on March 24-26.
Grand prize: One of two German Kabirski art jewellery rings
