These are the paintings made on panel canvases, 40x50cm, made with acrylic paint, which I painted during 2015.
The story of these personal works revolves around politics, and the way it influences our lives, mostly negative. Some works portray the character of politician, which I portrayed in many of my works, in various situations, illustrating many modern social and economical situations and topics. Other works portray different characters inspired by the Super-hero pop culture, used to control, spy and keep other people in order, mostly through violence, fear and oppression.
Dark humor, satire, irony, as well as parody, are used to portray these characters, through careful accentuation of the cliches we find attributed to each specific character, presented to the public via various Medias, like television, news papers, internet, movies, books etc. The underlying evil is situated in the heart of the politics which is made only to serve the selfish interests of the most rich and powerful elite which seeks to gain more and more control and surveillance over our life.
