In His Own Words
“The color in my works is sometimes fauvistic, wild and intensive, and often the complementary mergers of the colorings, posted one by another, shape the form suggesting the third dimension. In my works some frozen action is happening – on some we can identify which is the action of the main actors (musicians), and on the others (because they are in imaginary and undefined areas), we can only presuppose it in accordance to our individual feeling (sadness, rage, resignation, questions, fear, cry etc.).
My portraits display restrained reaction and impression which emphasize the characteristic dimension of the particular individual and the psychological insight of her/his soul.” – Mihael Korubin
