Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

"Urban stories" is a series about moments and situations happen in a big city. Day-to-day life brings us many different news, incidents and occasions that flash and disappear in our perception, but they leave traces of mood and information in our mind, and become those little things that make up our day. We can hear about something that touches us or is important for us. We can meet strange persons throughout the day. All those impressions influence us and fine tune our way of thinking and feeling of our own presence in this world.
Urban Stories is a series of paintings executed all in the same technique and style expressing a reaction of modern human on city life around him or her.
Overall, paintings are bold in composition and vivid in color contrast. They live in the same visual space and speak the same language but they are still different and any of them can tell its own story. All compositions use organic elements as well as some geometric and architectural motifs inspired from urban and industrial environments.
Technique used is cut pieces of raw canvas painted with acrylic paint mixed with marble dust. Pieces then are glued onto stretched canvas painted black. Sometimes, mixed materials are used such as natural rust and real dust and scrape bits from the artist's studio floor. All paintings are in the high archival quality and ready to hang. Signed and dated by artist on the back.
