Nikolai Bartossik About

I believe that a new idea can be expressed only by a new form. Art for me is a celebration of passion. By the artist method, I analyze a process of creating forms especially emotional forms of women shapes and lines. I explore the plastic finesse of emotion. I want to discover tensions which arise during the process of collision and transmission of energies. I want to discover an essence of BEING in a great system of tensions. Add Comment
