I am the painter who is against all general opinion. My paintings are mirror of our contemporary frustrations. groen Kriegstreiber des Jahrhunderts als anbetungswrdige Ikonen mit Heiligenschein darstellt, Khomeini als segnenden Christus, die heile Vorzeigefamilie vor dem Hakenkreuz oder als grinsende Fratzen vor Warner Brother Plakaten der Traumfabrik Hollywood. Scepanovic entwirft eine schne bunte Welt der Grausamkeiten.Cultural Industrie macht glcklich, wie eine unten Drogen fanatisch lchelnde junge Frau mit ungesunder Hautfarbe wei machen will. Ein Pepsikronkorken gert zur Aureole einer Madonna mit Kind und austauschbare Parolen ziehen sich quer durch das collagenartigen Werk. Auch jngste Ereignisse werden kommentiert, wenn er Barak Obama vor dem Weien Haus platziert und mit Zitaten wie he is no real black und exponent of beast versieht. Scepanovic legt mit seiner Kunst unsere Welt frei, er macht die Schichten ersichtlich, unter denen sich Massenverfhrung breit macht. Ob Westen oder Osten, Scepanovic zeigt: die Mechanismen sind berall die gleichen. Mit seiner Wertediskussion in Form von Bildern trifft Scepanovic mitten ins Herz unserer kranken Welt.Redaktion:Dr. Stefanie Lucci
