Artist Statement

I attach some of my recent drawings from 2008 until 2010, the works are about critical situation of human being, politics, empirical subject, annulations, fear, absence and other conclusions of every modern society and its connection with human being as a creator of dreams, functions and reality.

As an artist it would be difficult to express my thoughts in words (this is why I'm not writer), but paradoxically deep penetration into interpretation could comes to an image of art, so maybe this why art is complex paradigm of reality. There's no more to say I'd rather attach W.Benjamin idea at the end:

The mass is a matrix from which all traditional behavior toward works of art issues today in a new form. Quantity has been transmuted into quality. The greatly increased mass of participants has produced a change in the mode of participation. The fact that the new mode of participation first appeared in a disreputable form must not confuse the spectator. Yet some people have launched spirited attacks against precisely this superficial aspect. Among these, Duhamel has expressed himself in the most radical manner. What he objects to most is the kind of participation which the movie elicits from the masses. Duhamel calls the movie “a pastime for helots, a diversion for uneducated, wretched, worn-out creatures who are consumed by their worries a spectacle which requires no concentration and presupposes no intelligence which kindles no light in the heart and awakens no hope other than the ridiculous one of someday becoming a ‘star’ in Los Angeles.” Clearly, this is at bottom the same ancient lament that the masses seek distraction whereas art demands concentration from the spectator. That is a commonplace
