India

I had a chance (or if you want to speak about privilege let’s say so) to visit India – motherland to our spirituality, land where all world major religions come from. In March 2014, my long-dreamed wish to discover this subcontinent came true. This tour, indeed not very long, as I have stayed in the

石獅

Shíshī in China or  komainu in Japan, chinese guardian lions ( often called Fu-dogs in Occident) as a element of far-eastern culture always fascinated me by on one hand  the meaning of this imporant symbol and on the other by this exoctic interpretation of the prinicpal of believes in far-eastern countries as an equivalent of

Et in Arcadia ego

“For we brought nothing into this world: and certainly we can carry nothing out.” I – Tim 6:7 Popular as no other spiritual originated theme in painting (but may be charity) appears Vanity and contemporary society loves this ‘cutest of sins’ more than any other one to reflex it’s feeling about existence. I love vanity

Plants

Kingdom of Flora, so fascinating, inspiring artists since millennia is a welcoming theme to explore in contemporary creations even if floral motives may seem quiet old fashioned today. Not only Takashi Murakami’s psychadelic flower explosions or Don Sultan’s minimalistic compositions witness how the painters interprete their curiosity about plants. Flowers: If it’s by interest in

Korman au Maroc

>>Morocco was to me a revelation.<<  Winston Churchill states in one of his articles. It was just the same to me when I first discovered this magnificent country.  I dare say that Morocco is to Orient what Italy is to Europe, even if it were worth to add that the country is the very occidental

Les antiquités I (pairs and series)

The complete collection of my antiquity inspired paitings dating back to 2010 when started the Imago series with portrait of ‘Antinoos de Richelieu’ (Musée du Louvre). Using different techniques I have produced a series which counts several ‘portraits’ of famous marbles from biggest collections. Once again working with a principle of notoriety just like Andy

Francesco

In 1652 Bernini finished his work on bust of Francesco I d’Este, Duke of Modena – an artloving ruler of Modena and Reggio nell’Emilia. This portrait in marble which stands for what is considered (with the bust of French Sun King Louis XIV by the above mentioned sculptor) as an example and standard for monarchical portraiture

Das Schloß

126 years have passed since the opening of the famous Neuschwanstein castle to the public and since the death of Ludwig II of Bavaria that year; 90 years ago precisely Franz Kafka started to work on his last and longest novel The Castle, published in 1926. Two years ago, just after having finished reading of

Art of portrait 2

Once again inspired by my favourite maestro after having visited his exhibition in Centre Georges Pompidou: Matisse: Pairs et Series to focus on art of portrait. I took my favourite model’s beautiful face to start with a variation on famous Portrait de Lydia Delectorskaya (Hermitage museum, Saint Petersburg) and sketch her portrait split by an invisible

A Garden

In the same way as in the beginning of discovering countries in search of inspiration during my first stay Italy hit me with immense beauty and I fell in love with it’s landscapes and light Morocco, and more precisely Marrakech, has got me charmed and mesmerised me by her strange and vivid colours. As every

The Mesmeriser

Here is the one – blast from the past. It finds itself in New York and I was particularly happy to offer him an American adventure. Considering it as one of my best paintings ever done I miss this strange fearless but full of doubts sight very much of course. The absence of colours underline
