Using the language of abstract art, OPA Professional expresses the cosmogonical artistic impulse to penetrate into the ontological strains of their own microcosm. The inventiveness and intuitiveness of the unrestrained gesture is the driving artistic force of the composition, tending towards a certain generality and bringing closer the metaphysical inner world of the painter, where the use of colors adds complexity to the process of uncovering the components of rational thought and of spontaneity. Thus, the playfulness of the repetitive patterns, emphasizes the permanent possibility of new creative impulses, with an integrity towards the overall expression and with complete affirmation of the drawer’s idea.
With this self-representation using the associative forms of the artistic creations Something In Nothing, A Stone In a Shoe, Infinity and others, OPA Professional opens a new chapter in the contemporary trends of the Macedonian fine arts, in general.
