Series : Faces n Traumas
We are exposed. We want to hide. But there is no escape. Unless we remove our face. And paint it red. Paint it blood.
I used to paint and draw since I was a little kid. I needed to create some kind of world inside my head and painting helped me to do so. I imagined fairy-tale-ish countries and drew faces with huge eyes and teeth.
As an adult, it is still something I need to do to stay alive. I simply have to clean my head and art is like a meditation for me. It keeps me alive when gloomy days knock on my door and hesitate to leave.
I am often called Klara klf Kusa or simply klf and I live in Slovakia, Bratislava. I am a self-taught emerging artist and university student of Design School. I am fond of expressionism, abstraction and explicit artwork style. My idea is to experiment and always search for new techniques even though I prefer spray paints and found objects. In my art,I focus on social and political topics. Apart from doing art, I am an occasional poet, mental health activist, blogger and philosopher of my mind.
