Urban series / Paris by dakini.hu - Crystal Child Generation

  Dear Friends! I had a fascination with crystals since my early childhood and I collected crystals and minerals as a child. I often found star-shaped crystals digging in the ground or pieces I created stars from them. This childhood memory followed me in Paris, while I was fascinated with the dancers, stars on the  stage  of  Parisian Opera, Moulin Rouge..etc. I made some series about these "star children", as I called them, since their joy and enthusiasm and passion was as a child of 5 years old on stage, makes people happy and joyous! These "star child" artists preserved their joy and creativity as a child even at older ages. I made the paintings on purpose on aquarelle paper to preserve the spontaneous and quick movement of dancers, I could never use the "heavy oil" technique for catching swift moments and motions,  that would contradict the theme. The technique shall never contradict the theme at least for me. In the spur of the moment, I used aquarel

Dear Friends! I painted an entire series about my New York experience, too. I have an entire series about Paris. These two cities are the Apple of my Eyes and hopefully, stay forever my inspiration as  a fine artist including Japanese culture... and so many others, I could mention. As a proud Hungarian, I am also a universal citizen. I feel at home everywhere where I meet kind people. I love to discover new places and assimilate with the everyday lives of different countries. Watching life and gazing at the clouds as a child. I kept the habit of discovering creatures in the clouds, like elephants, dragons, horses, or whatever laying in the grass. My urban paintings were created because I felt joy and felt freedom. I am incapable of painting if I am down. It would not be fair to my audience. Keeping bad memories is a waste of time.

 Dear Friends! Whenever I look into my past memories,  the FIRST first city comes to my mind: Paris where I got real the "cultural shocks" during my youth! I love Yves Montand's music! I used to spent my young life in Paris for a while and became the painter I always  wanted to be there. Inspiration - LifeWork- Urban series - Paris - Notre Dame -Eiffel Tower - Moulin Rouge - Opera Garnier Reflecting on my own life work since 1989 as a fine artist, during the first days of each new year, I always take time to look back to previous years' collections of my artworks and focus on them as an inspiration to start my new creations.
