Painting Supergirl 2
Supergirl 2 is a new painting painted on canvas using acrylic paints. Sensual, energizing and unique creation that combines abstraction and realism. It presents a beautiful black-haired girl during fitness exercises. Original composition and presentation of the female body. Deeply thought out color scheme, subdued but joyful, elegant form, expressive message, mysterious but positively energetic.
This high quality acrylic painting is painted on canvas with a lightly textured texture, without having to be framed ornamented because the linen edges are covered by the white color.

The second painting from the “Supergirl” series. It is from March 2019 in a private collection that includes the original art of Salvador Dali.

In this series, I’ve been touching topics such as perfectionism and self-centeredness of a ‘Selfie-Generation’, which sometimes lead to narcism. Although these “supergirls” seem to live according to their own rules and to be very strong and decisive, they aren’t necessarily fulfilled.
Cubism is an early 20th century avant-garde art movement that revolutionized European painting and sculpture. In addition, some people say that it’s the most influential art movement of the 20th century.
Noteworthy in cubist artworks, objects are rather analyzed, broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form. Instead of depicting objects from a single viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. The most famous painters associated with the cubism movement are especially Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso.
“If we had never met Picasso, would Cubism have been what it is? I think not.” Georges Braque
Painting technique using acrylic paints, which have a similar characteristic to oil paints. Acrylic paintings are as durable as oil paints.
The most important practical difference between acrylic paints and oil paints is the drying time. Acrylic paints are ideal for painters using sharp and firm brush movements. Mixing acrylic is more difficult than mixing oils just because acrylics are starting to dry quickly. With oils you can mix colors for many days, resulting in a variety of color variations on which acrylics will not give you enough time. This slow process of drying oil can be seen as an advantage for some technicians, but on the other hand, this lengthens the process of image formation.
Another advantage of acrylic is that it can be rinsed with water during work, no solvent to clean brushes, and when dry, the paint layer is waterproof and can quickly overlap both hides and lacquers. Acrylic paint is durable, elastic, resistant to aging, does not turn yellow, does not crumble.
All these advantages contribute to the growing popularity of this painting medium among contemporary artists.
