Series of portraits inspired by the women of Mallorca Island

The post-impressionists broke traditional portraiture and explored all possible avenues of representation and expression. At the beginning of the 20th century artists pushed the portrait in different directions, focusing on new aspects – line, color, form, and most importantly psychology.
The “psyche” started to be more important then the realistic, physical transmission of the person’s traits. The desire to capture the “subjective” and “emotional” leaved a big imprint on portrait art.
This inspired me to create this series of portraits – imperfect, colourful, naked.
