BARCELONA

Updated: Dec 3, 2019

One of my first paintings in the collection of portraits 'Beauty of us'. I was inspired by my favorite city - Barcelona and one of the doors of Sagrada Familia.

2017. oil on canvas, 70x50cm

When you look at first there is no obvious image of Barcelona and I wasn’t going for obvious but for my last experience of Barcelona. I visited the city quite a few times before and I was more focused on just enjoying the city. The painting is two things that left the biggest impression on me – parks of Barcelona (specifically Montjuïc park) and Sagrada Família. As a model I took a Spanish dancer and surround her by lotus leaf’s inspired by Barcelona’s park and bugs, lizard and plants from a door of Sagrada Família.


The explanation is focused on this specific peace, but to understand where the whole idea come from, why I did this collection, please read my artist statement on my collection ‘BEAUTY OF US’ which this painting is a part of:
