Art Description

Painting: Oil and Acrylic on Canvas.

The picture belongs to the series "Picasso".
Inspired by Pablo Picasso's work Guernica.

You have dedicated a whole series of works to Picasso. Where does the fascination come from?

I've dealt a lot with Picasso as a person and how he made his decisions as an artist. I think he was very brave. For example, he was the first to dare to neglect the similarity in the portrait. Through him, I was inspired to the "no face" series and had the courage to completely eliminate the faces. Also his life story, especially his lively affairs with women, have developed a series of images in my head. I like the erotic drawings of Picasso. I look at them over and over again, because I like them so much.Three works of my series are in the collection Klewan, some of them can be seen in the Museum Belvedere in Vienna. Where my "Picasso with his girlfriend" hangs next to a real Picasso. I was very happy, of course.


If you could meet Picasso personally, what would you say or ask?

I would simply look into his eyes, press his hand, and hug him. Nothing more. In such a case you don't say anything.
