In this series I approach works from masters of the past, which I reinvent by using only their work and nothing else, as it was paint or pixels, replicating it thousands of times with almost as many variations, forming a microcosm which I try to keep in harmony with the macrocosm of the transfigured artwork.
When I create, more than an artist, I feel like a shaman summoning spirits. I see in every image, even the most simple, almost infinite possibilities. While I digitally explore these possibilities, I have moments of recognition that guide my choices. Sometimes the visions I chase can be overwhelming for me, to the point that I need to take a break.
After hundreds of iterations, the end result is an artwork that is substantially different from the original and that I recognize as “Barabeke’s”.
Here are my transfigurations so far. Click on them to get more info, see videos exploring their details, and collect them as NFT art.
