— Story

Breathless People is about the fact that any story that happens to one of us can happen in the life of another human being.

Such coincidences may interpenetrate each other, wreaking enormous havoc in both lives. Thanks to digital layering and duplication, several selected drawings have been used to create an impressive collection that illustrates an unchanging feature of this world: As it turns out, one trauma can give rise to so many shades that they become almost infinite. More disturbingly, each piece fits together perfectly, creating another hybrid of misfortune.

Each of the series of drawings creates a separate story. All of them are part of a larger project entitled Tell Me Stories, which I have been creating since 2007. The NFT series, started in 2022, is an extension of the entire series, which, having received a new formula, comes to life in digital form. By transferring the drawings to the digital world, I have endowed each of them with a new shade, a more general and universal flavour.

From the artist

I use portraits to commemorate – or, perhaps to an even greater extent, to give my voice – to victims of violence. However, we will never recognise specific people in them; thanks to art, they begin to speak a universal language. For me, these portraits are a kind of monument, a souvenir – very drastic, but still worth remembering. An inconvenient gift that cannot be thrown away, because in most cases it has been received from a loved one.

I create seemingly unrelated series of portraits. Traces. Documentation of moments that I consider important, including the dramatic ones. Because the world around us does not have just one side, good or bad.
