The Forbidden 

The  forbidden, Mixed Media  Installation, 2016

Life drawing which once was a fundamental part of the training of artists is now considered old-fashioned and useless in many art schools. However, the visual and manual pleasure of the ancient medium is still tempting for many art students as well as many professional artists. “The Forbidden” is composed of several figures made by a metal pen and ink wash on both sides of a 35x600cm watercolor paper enclosed in a plexiglass box. This project explores the contrast between the manual and visual pleasure of traditional drawing with the conceptual priorities of contemporary art.

Life Drawing 

Life drawing for me works as an instrument through which I try to improvise classical music. In these works, I employ traditional drawing techniques and rules to improvise with figures on paper seeking to create spontaneous harmony between them. I have no idea how the finished work will appear. I go on drawing different poses about each other and their surroundings over the same supporting surface trying to unite them and make a piece composed of several figures.
