Anatomy of an artist

Anatomy of an artist is a corpse of work that i started 2 years ago, only using black and white, always refers to an organ over or under performing.

as we are all home and i don't have access to all my colors and usual materials, i naturally came back to this work.

I decided to only focus on line and shape for approximately a month.

Usually, most of my projects are based on colors interactions and figures.

This time, I decided that as an Artist, since we are exposed as strange species, I could expose a little dissection with my own vision.

As an artist, we all have a different perception of the world, colors, lines, and therefore ourselves.

I tried my best to draw as a metaphor of my own experience.

Renouncing to colors to find the essence of creativity and show the the lines as a statement.

I decided to only focus on lines and shapes in order to not waste any effort to figure out the real subject.

we are all made of flesh and bones, maybe some more than others.

being an artist makes you always extend the reality to relativity and twist the rules or clichés of just Being.

Let it Be.

In physic, you learn that light (colors )come from darkness.

In painting, you learn that colors create darkness.

In real life, we are spoiled by colors, design, marketing to not mind about content.

Black has a dark idealism but actually it's the most common one.

Drawing is the most basic and primitive way of expression, with or without skills.

Most of the time,I work with color and interactions but going back to black is actually the best way I have to crate new color harmony.

In this moment of lockdown, we are locked in with ourselves, for the best or worst.

Our inner happiness and reflection is inside each and everyone of us.

It's not about self care or yoga position. Ask yourself what do i want to say, how and for which purpose.

Having an understanding of our pattern of behavior and making the transition easier.

Each of us have dreams, visions and fears. That doesn't mean that we are locked in with them.

As an artist, we feel the urge to fill the blank, being productive and efficient. Not having venue, exhibition or commission is creating a black hole in our habits.

Many artists have been very inspired during pledge in history, it will surely change the way we create, curate and interact with the viewer.

Inside we have all this potential locked-or not.

The way we interact with the art world today is gonna lift new ways to express and reflect on our unstable conditions of being an artist.
