“Death of venus” is inspired by the iconic painting “The birth of Venus” by Sandro Botticelli, created in 1486 during the Italian Renaissance. To me this painting is a representation of unsurpassed artistic talent, creativity and originality. In today’s contemporary art world much of those qualities are no longer as important. Art has become more of a commodity and investment tool, something that people buy and hope it will be worth more in the future. In my sculpture the skull symbolizes those changes of cultural ideas and values. The Ferrari red auto paint is a representation of our fast living times, of glitz and glamour yet some degree the figure itself represents the old traditions”
