The fragile face of the city

Influences of industry, traffic, vandalism and light change and destroy the omnipresent messages of the capitalistic advertising and marketing strategists who want to push a visual illusory world on people continuously. The varied processes of the decay in quick change let the glamorous colours dull, fragment the pictures and transform themselves in new phenomena with own aesthetics. Inspired by these urbane appearances and based on photography, i research and archive the processes of disintegration of typography and posters in cities and urban spaces.

The resulted photographic and mental archives form the basis for the next artistic process of collage and decollate, painting and reliefs on papers, canvases, wood and other materials in different formats. Another face of the city is created and proposes new questions.
