These 5 paintings are part of the collection “Travels of freedom” that consists mainly of live sketches of cityscapes made during my trips to different destinations around the globe. A way to capture the vibe of the cities and to share my travel experiences with the world, in order to convey the message that we are closer than we think and that our freedom is a real treasure. After the pandemic, I enjoy this activity of live-outdoors painting even more, hence, I would like the audience to interpret this collection as way to express a united world in which each part and culture comprises a part of a bigger whole.
Through my art, I try to reflect the human quest for deciphering the mysteries of nature through art and science, as well as reflecting social issues and in general sharing an overview of the world and the human potential. My main painting technique is Oil on canvas, through which I emulate the methods of the old masters like Velasquez, Rembrandt and Caravaggio. Additionally, I also explore other mediums like Acrylic, ink, watercolor and charcoal depending on my subject and the nature of my painting. Moreover, being right-handed, I also paint with my left hand, achieving a totally different, more abstract style and lately, I have been capturing live scenes via watercolor and ink, during my trips across Europe and other parts of the world. Recently, I joined the NFT movement, and I am preparing a collection of Non FungibleTokens “Travels of freedom”, so my art can be collected in a digital fashion.
