Acquired from the above by the present owner.
I’m not satisfied whenever I start a non-figural painting; in the end I have to repaint it and make a new one with a figure. I use painting like a game, where the dominant part of it is the hero. I have many heroes and idols in my life, famous people, movie heroes, wrestlers, mythological and Biblical figures. I like to deform their established properties, and put them into new contexts. In terms of appearance, for me, painting is mainly a game of shapes, colors, and absurd landscapes of muscles.
