Titled “Sketch of Socotra – part I”, this original artwork signed by Romanian artist KSELEQOQYNQYSHY is an astonishing example of how he reveals eerie yet tangible worlds through his distinct intricate painting technique. Discover “Sketch of Socotra – part II” here.
400×160 mm / ink on 300 gsm paper / wooden frame / plexiglass
KSELEQOQYNQYSHY (Casele cu Ochi Închiși / Houses with Eyes Closed) is an active project and it manifests through personal exhibitions (Bucharest, Varna); the participation at the Street Delivery Festival Bucharest 2018 with an awesome mural; a mural collaboration in Budapest with SUNSHINERS & TUS. He is one of the winners of Un-hidden Bucharest Open Call 2018, creating an outstanding mural graciously hosted by the Faculty of Sociology and Social Work, University of Bucharest, Bd. Schitu Măgureanu, nr. 9.
The author illustrates a fantastic world, full of imaginary symbols and characters. KSELEQOQYNQYSHY presses a visually-aware journey, transposed in a ludic manner, offering “viewers” a colourful experience combined with elements of mysticism.
Socotra, the place that captured the artist’s imagination, has been named “the most alien-looking place on earth” due to its rich biodiversity, as it hosts more than 700 extremely rare species of fauna and flora, while up to a third of its plant life is endemic.
