Soa Leun - Thoughtfulness

I am an artist who works under a pseudonym. Creation is a pretext for me to build deeper relationships with the world around me and other people. My art is largely based on finding a common thread for the past and present. I refer to memories and experienced feelings. In my work I often return to the childhood times and how they affect our adult life. I am interested in loneliness, immigration, identity and broadly defined equality.Through my artistic practice I want to show that the history of every person is important and can resonate with others. I refer to the works of masters of painting and give them a new, contemporary context.

Physically based in Cracow, but emotionally related to South Africa.
