bauhaus – geometry – topology - manifold
"I love to paint with light" - This simple line describes
the best my passion for visual arts which involves both, artistic and
technical skills, intended to produce aesthetic (fine art) artifacts
with digital media. Even though I had tried out different visual art
forms (starting with traditional art), I'm mostly active as
photographer and digital artist. This way I'm in the position to,
additionally, create sequential and conceptual art, as well as visual
compositions, with various ideas and messages. I don't have a
personal, unique style, rather an eclectic approach to fine arts, a
kind of mixed styles called eclecticism or polystylism, which should
not be misunderstood as academic art or syncretism.
In ancient Greece, the term mimesis was used with the reference to the creation of works of art, with correspondence to the physical world understood as a model of beauty, truth and the good. However, the contemporary meaning of the word mimesis does not apply to the philosophical aspect behind my work, since I'm not an imitator or actor by nature. I was said to be a realist with strong attention to details. The accurate representation of the visual appearance of things is mostly present in my photography (and some digital artworks), which embodies a form of reason, that is non-repressive and non-violent. However, every now and then, I do let my imagination a free flow, which results in simple or more complex compositions, with familiar or imaginary themes.
apparel - home decor - accessoires
Geometry was one of my favorite parts of mathematics. It evolved independently following some basic (Euclidian) concepts and applications to the field of art and architecture. It has a strong influence in my work as apparel and home decor designer. Bauhaus has a strong approach to design which stroves to combine beauty with usefullness and attempts to unify the principles of mass production with individual artistic vision. It was founded upon the idea of creating a total work of art, in which all the arts would be brought together. The inspiration for my designs stems from ancient, ethno and tribal motives. The work process ranges from elegant minimalism to serial art compositions.
3d art - photo manipulation - mixed media - character design
Next to digital painting, photo manipulation and vector art I'm also working with DAZ Studio, creating 3d characters and rendering full scenes in Iray or 3-delight. The main process involves basic morphing, skin textures, make up & face painting or body art. The goal is to create the most realistic actor. Such 3d characters are also used in photo manipulation or mixed media art, mostly for fantasy themes as japanese folklore, sword & sorcery and science fiction. Characters created by me are Geisha-Ningyos (Magical Mermaids), R.A.A.H. Female android humanoids and Japanese martial artists Miyuki and Toshiro. Elvira is an additional multifaceted Genesis 8 and Victoria 8 character morph which can be used for any purpose. She has, however, a huge passion for motor bikes.
macro - fine art - street - pure photography
Fine art photography is not just recording realistic shots of subjects or scenes for personal or commercial purpose. It is creating art of magic with your camera. Pictorial images that I'm working on (be it nature, animal or even street photography) are a combination of pure and art photography that is produced to fulfill my creative vision, to express my perception and emotions, and to share them with others.
