Do not miss this week his Parisian exhibition at Espace 93, 93 rue Saint Dominique in the 7th district of Paris organized by Art Pour Tous Sans Frontières, a French non-profit supporting the Artists.
It’s already ending this Friday, September 15th, 2017!
You will find large-format paintings with desperate faces, blank expressions, eyes conveying a sense of loss, wounds but also rays of hope, rebirths, colors of life.
In another life, FUAD KAPIDZIC was a veterinarian in Sarajevo. From that time, painting was already more than a leisure, a pleasure, a passion. While in 1992, the unimaginable happens. A country breaks out, former neighbors are torn apart, war destroys cities, neighborhoods, houses, peoples. FUAD KAPIDZIC leaves on foot, reaches the mountains and arrives in Croatia. The relief is brief, the war invades the whole region. Then he choses to go further, to France.
Not being able to exercise his trade, he then devotes himself to painting.
He creates collages based on torn billboards in the subway, and rebuilds a universe in the image of war that destroys. From then on, he imagines his own aesthetics linked to his artistic references and his suffering.
The bruised faces, the torn collages, the end of the world landscapes, finally give way to a period of hope. We discover a chaotic but hopeful world through pianos planted in the middle of nowhere. Pianos presented as artistic and life notes that endure when nothing else exists, music as a remedy.
FUAD KAPIDZIC has been rebuilding himself in France for over ten years with and thanks to the painting.
FUAD KAPIDZIC is also a part of the selection of Not a Gallery, an atypical place born of the reflection of Natacha Dassault and her passion for Art and Artists.
