Advertising space

The artist plays with convention and space, constructing a highly minimalist narrative. The central part of the painting is dominated by a space in a pale beige color, serving as the background. Against this backdrop, two small black objects stand out.


“Advertising space ” may indicate the artist's ironic approach to the excess of unnecessary content in both public and private spaces. The painting, devoid of literal advertising content, signifies a withdrawal from this cluttered world of visual stimuli.


It is a work that provokes reflection on the role of art in the era of consumerism while also offering space for individual interpretation and contemplation. It comments on the issue of commercialization of public space, where even the smallest area can be utilized for marketing purposes.

This is a picture from the series “Borrowed Images”, based on moving the frames that life suggests. This frame was cut out of the public space of the Cultural and Commerce Center and transferred by the artist to a simplified canvas.
