In my artwork I am interested in synthesizing different media of fine arts such as painting, graphics and mixed media. In this way I’m seeking to find how the properties of the researched phenomena can be best unfolded. Combining established media seen as the stereotypes leads to expressing the entire range of emotional and physical involvement of the artist in his work.

 

Building up on themes I explored in the past I’m currently engulfed in exploring the "stereotype vs. identity" theme. This is why the corn stone of the concept behind my planned project is the optical description of the ways an object or image is perceived creating a visual dialog when the view angle changes; and the dialog itself can change when the viewer moves within the physical space or changes its way of thinking about the object or image.

The art work that would follow such a concept will delicately challenge the stereotype thinking, stating that a system of cliché is in fact relative and can either be diluted or intensified depending on the viewing angle. The effect will be the one of entropy, whereby constructive interference will make development possible and open new opportunities.
