PAINTER, MAGICIANAndrei Babici
I rely on total asymmetrical artwork in my both the abstract and the figurative paintings.
Illusion, mystery, immortality and hope are part of the artwork I have created. Realistically speaking, the viewer’s place is in the painting as an actor taking part to the big play of forms and colors. His access code is his own imagination. I rely on total asymmetrical artwork in my both the abstract and the figurative paintings. Everything is based on my passion or my moods which tell me how much or how little to reveal in each work as a controlled disorder.
I consider that my search for mystery doesn’t need clear images because I’m only a tool in a process having as a final product a painting which is lighting my soul with its colors.
I’m asking you, infinite souls to step with hope in my world of color where shapes speak for themselves, no matter what and lines, strokes, and hues are twist together in a spectacular and confused dance of structures. I am seeing myself as an interesting human being, who tries to find answers to the questions of everyday life’s challenges. I am looking at my own life as a magic show master, who can do new trick to open more opportunity’s doors for me.
I am a happy and lucky person who tries to enjoy life, and I am influenced by my own experiences not by other persons’ achievements. I owe a lot to my family who believed in me and inspired me.
