Original artwork description:

This work is one of the "golden works" where I highlight the modern trend of following healthy lifestyle as new religion.
This creation resembles the icon of modern life.

My latest works are inspired by the graciousness and inner light of the athlete's body postures as captured by old Soviet sport photographs. They look very pure and clean almost "iconic" as sport was a Religion during Soviet era and an only one possible as traditional religions were banned. The cult of a beautiful sporty body is stressed by the use of golden leaf on the background, just like gold is traditionally used to paint icons.
When looking at such pictures we subconsciously associate ourselves with the athlete and get inspired in our ambitious pursuit of beautiful longevity made possible by constant physical exercise. In all times we admired beauty and grace, that is why today's athletes or beautiful people are among the most followed and almost "worshipped" on Instagram or Facebook or any other social network..

This work can be used without frame as it has gold-painted boards.

Materials used:

oil and metal leaves
