Circus of freaks

Painting, January 2019, 80×120 cm

Description of the artwork «Circus of freaks»


Initially, the work was started under the idea of "metro". While working on the sketches, I thought that it would be great to depict the sins of a person on one canvas, because people ride the subway and you can see a similar scene in each carriage. The character in the center squeezes a white crow - a white crow as a symbol of something different, unlike other creature, he is destroyed, squeezed and do not want to be seen nearby. These "freaks" are deeply unhappy and I think each of us will be able to see in these characters something from ourselves, even from the very depths. You shouldn't be afraid of them, you should accept them, you should love them.
