ARTIST’S STATEMENT:
 

The process of the work, in a very vague description, is painting. The work is presented on a canvas and the materials that are used vary from piece to piece. The most common materials that appear on the pieces are acrylic paint, spray paint and different types of ink. Rarely pencil marks, uncovered gesso primer, collage of different materials and led light strips. All in all, the paintings can be considered of mixed media.

 

The work is usually presented just by hanging the paintings on the wall, although, sometimes it is rested on the floor and wall, or on specific objects depending the piece. The final pieces look, in a way, surreal and complicated. Contemporary and street artists like KAWS and Preston Paperboy have influenced to some point the style and mixture of materials on the work. They do not tend to have a very big color palette, as its mostly being avoided. The preferred size for the paintings is around 100x150cm and can be presented in a landscape orientation or in a portrait orientation depending on the concept behind the visuals and what that suits them. Visually, there are clear realistic elements painted on the paintings combined with other styles such as graffiti, lettering, cartoons, and stencils. Along with the above elements there are abstract shapes or patterns present in most of the pieces.

 

The concept behind each piece of work is to control the overall atmosphere that is created by the combination of different components, which alludes to various contexts. In the work, repetition plays a great role as certain experiences are repetitive, thus, a lot of pieces have common patterns or styles in them. Due to the fact that the atmosphere that might trigger the beginning of a painting is not realistically painted as an image, the final pieces tend to look surreal in terms of composition, scale between elements of the painting and even styles that are used within the piece. The understanding of harmony consists of disorderly elements, whilst balance is the key factor within the composition. Therefore, a constant phrase that I personally use to describe the work is “controlled paranoia”. These words were specifically chosen because there is an overflow of information in my brain when processing a painting, so, the process of filtering this “paranoia” of information leads it to be “controlled” as an outcome. As certain events might have turning points and might not come to an end, the work keeps coming back, so this phrase stays constant and is a guide that lets the work develop and reach to a conclusion for the time being.
