Dragomir Misina‘s paintings are a whorl of fresh, bright, colourful and expressive marks, his vigorous canvases layered as if ripped out of a sketchbook, a heavily graffitied wall. Misina wants us to step into the whirlwind of his vibrant world that screams of life and activity, freshness and summer.
Somewhere underneath the layers of paint and marks lies a narrative waiting to be found out, told, explored and Misina does it with a lightness of touch and much brevity. Here’s what he has to say about his work:
My paintings are an exploration into colour, texture, mark making and painting itself. They are a combination of chance and deliberation, functioning as a diagram of layers, marks and colours which create gateways into make-believe worlds, suggesting both a physical and emotional energy in the course of making the work.
The starting point of each painting is based on a narrative which informs the course of painting and challenges me to find different ways of using materials accordingly, exploring and embracing their versatility in the process. I aspire to create experimental and innovative work which offers a diverse experience with each new painting.
I also title my paintings, which acts as another layer of intrigue or suggestion towards the narrative.
