Inspiration is all around and it can strike at any moment, bringing a painting out of an artist. For instance seeing a branch in the park and noticing its interesting texture, a moss that has a coral-like appearance. Here the portrait is a base for this intriguing texture like a tree that holds it but as well this moss reminds the artist of corals and to show off its diversity the artist adds a little fish posing as an earlobe. At the end the texture is both a coral and moss or just a texture itself without being something in particular.
This painting was awarded the “BEST IN SHOW” in “All Planet Earth” art competition by Contemporary Art Gallery in 2020.
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.
