Artwork description:

I have started my “Dreams” project in 2019 and it is solely based on the strange relationship between the human psyche and the spaces surrounding the person. Hallucinations, madness and nightmares are the secondary themes that influence me to illustrate people with mental disorders in different circumstances. Very often I use as documentation photos of insane or instable people taken by me either on the streets, asylums or psychiatric hospitals but the main concern still remains on the absurdity and madness existing in our world rather than a particular mental disease. From the painting’s aspect point of view, I have decided to combine the human figure (sometimes very detailed or situationally just sketched) with abstract insertions, wanting to bring to light the contrast of emotions within a person. The technique consists of a mixture of oil, acrylic, spray paint and marker or coal which allow me to achieve surfaces with different textures that generate more agitation and dynamism within the work itself.
The tense music of Arnold Schonberg, Gustav Mahler as well as Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy “The Will to Power” and the novels of Franz Kafka have greatly impacted my work. Within the visual arts frame I feel attached to Francis Bacon’s paintings and to neo-expressionism movement in general.
