"Breakthrough" framed poster
This painting is one of two murals I painted at Sun Hostel in Belgrade. The image comes from a powerful sculpture by a Turkish artist which I saw in Istanbul. Nearly every painting or mural I made while traveling abroad for 19 months was of a statue or sculpture that strongly captivated me. Surrounding these figures are either ideas around local religion or mythology, or things I may have been learning about at the time. In this case, I listened to the entire audiobook of Dune while painting this mural, I was reading Krishnamurthi and ended up curating text from his work for this mural; but during my time in Belgrade what stands out above all else were the friends I made at the hostel. They were absolutely fantastic! To revisit the paintings and murals I made while traveling, check out the blog section of this site here. These reproductions are limited to an edition of 75, after which no more will be made. These are museum-quality prints on archival matte paper.
