More about this artwork

The painting showcases a striking composition of two figures under a dramatic interplay of light and shadow. The background is dark, accentuating the subjects at the forefront. The figure standing upright is depicted in a vibrant orange-red hoodie, back turned to the viewer, giving an anonymous, mysterious vibe. This figure has a clear division down the middle of the body, suggesting a duality or split in persona.Before this figure, in a contrasting cool blue tone, another figure is positioned kneeling, appearing in a dynamic, almost strained pose as if pulling on something strenuously. This character adds a dynamic element, suggesting movement and tension. The most captivating aspect of the scene is the luminous circle that envelops the two figures, adding a surreal quality to the painting. This circle might symbolize unity, boundary, or protection, but simultaneously, it carries an enigmatic quality, leaving its interpretation open to the viewer.The use of contrasting warm and cool colors not only highlights the figures but also vividly conveys emotion and drama, creating a visually striking and emotionally engaging piece. The overall atmosphere is one of tension and mystery, compelling the viewer to ponder the relationship and story between these two figures.

"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.
