Aleksandar Zafirovski

ARTIST STATEMENT AND BIOGRAPHY
Aleksandar Zafirovski captures the beauty of landscapes in their purest form, untouched and untainted. The interplay of a harmonious blend of light, movement, and a sense of mystery evokes profound emotions and feelings of recollection.
Zafirovski’s artworks showcase a captivating bonding of traditional classical painting values and a contemporary visual language. This unique symbiosis skillfully combines elements like suggestion and abstraction at the same instant.
Zafirovski is recognized as a great master of texture.  It  emerges organically during the creative process, adding depth and character to the work. The paintings feature a play of light and dark areas, with delicacy in the brushwork and gentle movement.
The central theme is the meadow. The artist constantly builds his own meadow, expanding and shrinking it, adding and subtracting color. He wakes up in it and falls asleep on every painted and drawn herb. Through this process, he creates his own subjective and profound language, conveying that inner peace is possible by immersing oneself in his idyllic meadow.
Aleksandar obtained a master degree from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Skopje. His works are exhibited in Mirena Gallery, Saint Paul de Vence, Mirena Art Gallery, Downtown Dubai, Gallery Zest, Stockholm, Pioneri Art Platform, Skopje and Bukefal Gallery in Ohrid.
His work is included in several public and private collections.
