PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION:

You will start out by learning the basics of art theory, which you will later apply in practical work. The instructor will introduce you to the techniques of tone painting, and you will also gain experience in painting on canvas or paper. You will get to know painting in different formats with acrylics and expand this into a complex painting with still life, portrait, and figure themes. You will become familiar with colour mixing, colour contrasts, and harmonic values.

Brief presentation of the artist

In his works of art, Sylvester Plotajs Sicoe depicts the chaos of the urban world and the idols of mass culture, which he paints in pure and vivid colours in large formats. Strong, vivid colour compositions on a canvas surface are his most important tool of self-expression, which touches upon relationships and his own interpretation of the world and feelings. The messages he expresses through short quotes can be poetic, sometimes humorous, other times provocative, or it may seem as if he is using the visual language of primitive cultures. The intensity of the author’s feelings is thus transferred to the viewer.
