More about this artwork

The painting depicts a surreal and ethereal scene with three figures that blend aspects of humanoid and abstract forms, set against a dark, textured background that suggests a cave-like space. At the center, a figure sits atop a precarious structure resembling a high stool supported by thin, stick-like legs. This central figure is elongated, with elongated limbs and torso, draped in hues of blue and white, giving it a ghostly, otherworldly appearance. It raises one arm dramatically, pointing upwards, while the other arm extends outwards, adding to the dynamic tension of the composition.Flanking the central figure are two more figures, similarly abstract and skeletal in form. These side figures appear in mid-motion, with one of them reaching out towards the central figure with a thin, rod-like arm that ends in a sphere, possibly signifying an interaction or an attempt to connect. The other side figure bends forward in a bowing or yielding posture, further emphasizing the central figure's thematic and visual dominance.The overall atmosphere of the painting is moody and introspective, with a strong interplay of shadows and light that highlights the figures' ghostly silhouettes. The use of cool tones, primarily blues and grays, against the darker background contributes to the scene's haunting and mystical quality. The composition suggests themes of authority, mysticism, and perhaps the transcendence of the central figure above its surroundings, possibly reflecting on power dynamics and spiritual themes.

"Bonjour. I'm Ansis Bourquet, a man of art. I am inspired by what is beautiful and true. Triumph, victory, respect, spiritual development are my mottos in life. An art that protects, inspires, enriches one's soul and encourages personal growth. It's like affirmation, or a good niche perfume. A state of being happy, regardless of what is happening around you. A conscious dream that turns into reality. A conversation with yourself; rising above your limits and merging with a power that is higher than you. Dance, elegance, harmony, balance and inspiration are the language of my art. Words, music and smell are my colours. I believe that art renews, enriches, inspires and protects people..." - Ansis Burkė, a professional painter and a lecturer at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, combines seemingly incompatible things in his works: traditional painting of the highest quality and street art, as well as the signs of popular culture. The result is impressive and impactful.
