Shark sculptures 

Shark sculptures are the result of research. Sharks have been the main characters in my paintings and sculptures for some time. I chose these particular species because they are the synonyms for power, freedom, movement, and fear. 

Guided by instinct is a sculpture from shark sculptures series.

I found a lot of parallels between sharks and humans, which might be the main reason for the conflict between us. Fascinated with a diversity of Nature from my early age, I explore the possibilities in which Nature and built environment will coexist, continuing to admire its powers through my art.

“You go down to the bottom of the sea, where the water isn’t even blue anymore, where the sky is only a memory, and you float there, in the silence. And you stay there, and you decide, that you’ll die for them. Only then do they start coming out. They come, and they greet you, and they judge the love you have for them. If it’s sincere, if it’s pure, they’ll be with you, and take you away forever.”

― Jacques Mayol

Installation Circle of Life imposes a question why are we, from all the living beings, the ones that destroy and exploit nature to its limits?
Sharks sculptures represent beautiful, yet dangerous creatures due to their instinct-based actions. Humans on the other side, use both, mind and instincts, which makes us even more dangerous for the world around.
The amount of fear produced in our imagination whenever we mention the name shark is in conflict with the damage that we are causing to them every day.
This installation is composed of a variety of sharks, different sizes, and gender grouped together, imitating their way of movement, grouped in flocks.
