About The Artwork

2020 was an extremely productive year for me. I created all my canvases in one go. Music and painting saved me from depression. I painted my feelings, my mood, a spontaneous outpouring of emotions, my way to physically interact with everything around me: asking myself many questions during this process. Is this what happens just the beginning of the end? Is it a smile or a tear? Is my soul alive or not yet? What colours do I see around - eternity of grey or red?”. The title of my painting connects the picture with music, performance, opera and drama, and the famous "The whole world is a stage, and all men and women are just players: they have their outputs and their inputs" sounds louder and louder. Unframed. Size: 75 (W) x 100 (H) x 2 (D) cm / 29.5" (W) x 39.3" (H) x 0.8" (D) The painting is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

Spreading his time between UK, Prague, and Georgia, Jemal paints everything that catches his eye and imagination: landscapes, places, streets, still life, people, and female forms. Trained as a painter, Jemal's work comprises a wide range of techniques from the Venetian method, used by Titian, to contemporary impasto technique that gives a 3D appearance to his work. Although Jemal's philosophy of life is harmony, purity, deep reflection, beauty, contemplation, reserve, and simplicity of existence, he tends to dramatize rather than simply describe. He forces a viewer to concentrate his or her attention on the main object, not being distracted by many small details. The style that the artist uses in his still lifes, he calls "Minimalism in Realism". Objects in his simple still lifes always have a symbolic meaning, carry a certain message, and make the viewer think about the meaning of life. All the works that the artist creates are interconnected, although at first glance this is not the case. How can a still life be like a landscape or a portrait? The point is that in Jemal's portraits, the same questions are asked: "Who am I?", "Why are we here?", "Where are we going?", "What is the purpose of existence?"
