About The Artwork

Thinking about what Mars would be like if he was a modern man, the first thing that came to my mind was a racer. He would recklessly ride around on his ladder, getting pleasure from anything dangerous. Mars is the god of war, courage and fertility, the lord of vegetation, he has the power to increase everything, both cruelty and fear, as well as fertility and prosperity. God of wild nature, everything unknown, and dangerous, which was fraught with a threat. He could ruin the harvest, cause the death of livestock, but more often he protected livestock, did not allow crop failures. He has two faces, gentle and kind and cruel, knowing no mercy. Mars instills fear in anger, but also gives courage even to the weakest. He endows with the ability to subjugate people and control them. He has two main symbols that I tried to convey through the painting: a spear and a chariot. He is constantly on the move, he drives his charioteer with unimaginable speed. From a symbolic point of view, a spear can be compared with a branch, tree, cross, and also with the designation of spatial orientation, and therefore I represent him precisely as a racer and not as a representative of another dangerous sport, although I think he would not have given up on them either. Also, one of the hidden symbols number 27 on the helmet, the number of Mars that gives most of the Martian features. Intellectually, Mars fills human beings with activity, sensitivity and thirst for action. Without the influence of this spirit, mankind would not have advanced in science, or in labor, or in art. Tirelessness and thirst for victory - here is the engine that pushes us on new and new achievements. There are times in life when there is no strength for action and movement, I would like you to feel passion, excitement and interest to life, more energy when you look at this picture. •middle size contrasting artwork for lovers of contemporary realistic figurative art. •professional paints on linen canvas. •it has about 2.5 cm extra white margin on the edges, in order to be stretched on wooden frame later on. •the sides are painted in relevant colour, so there is no need for an additional frame. •ready to hang •signed certificate of Authenticity •the colours may look different on other devices/ screens •the painting will be delivered in box

Feruza Turlybek - a self-taught artist. I was born and live in Shymkent, Kazakhstan. I am the type of person who needs to express themselves on a daily basis. Having tried myself in many areas, I realized that my favorite way to express my emotions and thoughts is painting, which I finally returned to in 2018. And I made the right choice, because the first sign I received was the purchase of my painting a month after I started painting. The second sign was the sale of my painting abroad. Now 58 of my portraits are in private collections in Kazakhstan and abroad. My most effective sales resources are my Instagram page and my shops in online galleries. I have studied two foreign languages in university, in 2016 I studied in Spain, Cadiz and at the moment I can speak 5 languages which makes it easier for me to communicate and effectively work with a large number of art lovers and artists all over the world. I find life itself inspiring, especially people and their emotions, therefore I like to paint portraits most of all. I see each person in certain colours, so I never limit my style to a certain colour palette. I always make the choice of the colour palette depending on the character and in the colors that I see in him/her and the story behind them. Ideas for paintings come to me every day. Every idea is something that has come to my mind many times, something that I've been thinking about lately, that I've liked lately and that I've found beautiful. I combine them all, and this is what gives rise to the plots of my paintings. In my work, I like to use acrylic and oil paints and also adore texture paste and gold leaf. Through my paintings I share my emotions, experiences and thoughts that I am experiencing at the moment. Through them, I want you to feel that you are not alone. Give you what you lack to move on, fill you with desire and energy. It is normal to experience different emotions throughout life, and even in the most negative ones, you can find something good for you, something that will benefit you, something that will become your tool for achieving your happiness.
