“WHAT STRIKES ME IS THE FACT THAT IN OUR SOCIETY, ART HAS BECOME SOMETHING WHICH IS ONLY RELATED TO OBJECTS, AND NOT TO INDIVIDUALS OR TO LIFE”
Welcome to my website. Whether you are a fellow artist, an art student, a journalist, or just someone very interested in art, it is always great to connect with like-minded people.
Wondering what I have been up to recently? I am preparing for the ArtExpo New York that will take place on 21-24 April 2017 at Pier 94, and for that I am working on a tribute piece that has a deep personal meaning for me. The painting is dedicated to the late Bill Cunningham and his iconic corner in Manhattan where he started taking street fashion photos and sharing them with New Yorkers and the rest of the world before the concepts of fashion blogging and street fashion were even conceived. Please see My Blog to find out more about this work and my progress.
Here is one of my latest projects that I am still working on, and this is a new model whom I have never used before, which is an interesting artistic journey for me:
Reclining Nude, oil on canvas 54 x 40 inches
Portraiture and figure painting are amongst my favorite painting genres. I like to experiment and always ask myself: Does the portrait communicate a feeling or an emotion, is there a balance of color combinations, are there satisfying lines of force? It is always a challenge to take one decision above the other, and as an artist I always try to find the most balanced solution that allows me maintain the emotional appeal of my work without compromising its authenticity. Let’s hope that the next few days will be full of inspiration and hard work.
