The burnt lines have a unique texture and expression. The evaporated smoke produces soft lines and a very smooth gradient from the line to the background color, without any additional lines or borders. Solomostry literally reinterprets the term ‚sfumato‘ coined by the Italian renaissance painters in the 15th century. Given by the distance and the permanence of the flame on the canvas, as well as by the type of colors not he canvas, he can modify the character he is creating.
His research starts from the walls of the city, which have always given him the opportunity to work on large format, from the wall to the canvas he translates his experiences from the streets. Whether it is painting, shaping or burning his iconic monsters on different materials and colors, experimenting with new styles, Solomostry never forgets where he comes from.
