My first painting which was acquired by a museum into their collections. And this was a totally new one, painted solely for the client. It will be used in future exhibitions, first one opening later this year. The original painting was a lot larger than the ones that remained on canvas.

The painting fits under category “Mixed Media”, since the canvases are primed with quick concrete, gesso and turned into a brickwall replica with various cardboard slices glued onto it. I also made a high quality print from the whole wall and gave it to the museum. Just in case they’d want to use it with the canvases somehow, for example as a projection or in a exhibition catalogue.
