In art, theme is usually about life, society, politics or nature, but can be anything.
Themes are the ideas explored in a work that are usually implied rather than explicitly stated. A great majority of works have some kind of theme embeded. The theme is not the same as the subject of a work.
For example, the subject of Great World Personalities theme is Albert Einstein. Themes are ideas conveyed by the visual experience.
Art themes list
I do create continuosly and spend no time on curation. However, in the last 3 years art experts came up with a list of themes while systematizing my collections. Main art themes to explore are – existence origin, political history, transgender, war, superpowers of the world, great world personalities, nations and civilizations, great human dangers, progress makers, religion and its roots, female personalities, woman, world religions and philosophies, comic performers and fool characters, great world masters, disappointment, life around, royal, ugliness of power, national themes, political theory of the development of society, love, immigration, transition forms, good and bad, patience, endurance and struggle, time, stars, new age of the strange, rebellious, soul-searching and contemplation, failure of expectations…
Many people say my art is stimulating or striking. They say I always capture a subject or another in one painting. And it is true.
Take, for instance, Muammar al-Gaddafi’s fall from power: the events leading to it and their ending shook me to the core. Don’t get me wrong, I am no supporter of Gaddafi and his policy, quite the opposite: I think what he did defies sense and sensibility altogether. But despite a solid military training which I had while growing up, I still cannot get over what happened to the man; and this has nothing to do with fear!
I guess what I am trying to convey is the fact that we all have a shared responsibility for such tragic events which put under question our commitment to moral values and their practical application. These events affect us all and for me, painting is not only a form of art, but also a cure.
