IN ALL OF THIS, THERE IS SOMETHING THOUGHT-PROVOKING, SUBTLE, AND TERRIFYING. "The surrealists, known for their free associations, were the first artists to use dreams in their work consciously. My artwork expresses our fear of closed eyes quite accurately because that means we can't see anything out there. Open mouth depicts the necessity of feeding ourselves with the energy to live. Those who will remember their dreams long enough, or rather those who will be able to represent it on canvas, will create their own world where everything is possible.
This painting consists of several colorful shades, shapes, patterns which are oddly placed atop one another. And the checkered background is the entrance, the permission to the world of surreal and mystic." Kay Leben | Painter
A surrealist world of magic by our creative artist inspires us to feel a hidden truth in the colorful pattern. This extraordinary artwork is a vivid demonstration of the surreal artistry of modern pop art.
We can see a half-alive head with one eye closed and another opened in brilliant shades. Above, there is an open mouth from which a rainbow falls toward the head. The black and white coloring of it reminds us of some barbed wire or chains from which the creature tries to get rid.
The hand-painted artwork looks incredibly mystic and has a three-dimensional effect. In all of this, there is something thought-provoking, subtle, and terrifying. And so, the idea of this work of oil painting is to stir your imagination, or perhaps even to instill a feeling of horror.
