This painting is inspired by Barcelona, Jelena’s favorite city. This painting isn’t an obvious representation of the city but more the last experience of Barcelona that the artist had. The painting is inspired by two things that made the biggest impression on her – the Montjuïc park and the Sagrada Família. The central figure is a Spanish dancer surrounded by lotus leafs that filled a fountain of Montjuïc park, and by the door of Sagrada Família which is covered in sculptures of plants, bugs and lizards sculpted out of metal.
My body of work consist mostly of figurative oil paintings which are dominated by portraits of women. They are recognizable by the use of geometric shapes that construct the portrait and the background, and by bright contrasting colors.
My drawings are not realistic, rather naïve or even cartoonesque, and I use them as a platform for the painting’s theme, which come alive through the details in the painting.
