Artist: Safir

Desciption: In “The Birth of Mammon” I conceived the image of a self-portrait placed centrally in the middle of the composition and around, I concentrated a vascularized cloth with human fragments and animal remains a unitary mass, from which this image is formed. The features of the figure are hidden by the limestone bone mask, inspired by the character from Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera, who gives his main performer a mask of intellectuality, integration, and mystery. Existence bears the mask of Death, and Divination is one of the sources of self-transcendence. The inert and expressionless, petrified face, with its eyes fixed on the beholder, confers the sinister vision of the truth of a bloody birth, or of a beheading, of a heretical split between body and soul. The spirit, in turn, faces with the body, the fear, and fury of time and its elements, but in the last effort, renouncing its origin and giving itself completely to the cursed eternal search, lost forever in the multitude of exhausted souls that populate the planet, he is heading in one direction: annihilation.

More Works from this artist



Safir born on 23.11.1987 gained over years of study in faculty and master studies, the experience and values necessary for any artist, and also considers that the diversity in ideas and concepts is an essential addition to the development and introduction of "innovation" in the Art World: "the image creates the most magnificent cocktail of effect and sensation". My creations include traditional painting, figurative or abstract, original concepts, photography, photo - manipulation, and digital art. On the one hand, I give free will to the flow of evolution and informal gestures, stimulating disintegrative forces, and on the other hand, clarifying forms of human traits, these wandering spirits are pushed to the limit of a symbolic dialogue with the audience. Substrate raises topics of psychological, philosophical, mystical, mythological, fantastic, romantic, literary, mathematical, and metaphorical vision prior to painting, through metamorphosis and anamorphosis of the figurative to the abstract images, from real to imaginary. "Diversity and originality are two concepts that characterize me. When someone chooses to go on a single road, his vision is blurred and he will not notice anything around him, this happens in art also, so I chose not to follow only one "art direction", instead I diversify my artistic approach. One thing can be recognized in my work and this is the personal touch of my style, this does not change, it's a personal and artistic DNA. Beyond the looking glass, you will see the real me. "(Safir)
