Portrait is a unique and captivating way of capturing the essence of a person. It can be called a vanishing point in artwork presenting a person. It serves as a representation, primarily focusing on the head and, more importantly, the face of the individual being depicted. The face, often considered the gateway to one's inner self, possesses the power to convey a myriad of emotions and sentiments. It is this ability to express feelings and emotions that make the portrait such a beloved and prevalent motif in the world of art.Artists are drawn to this form of representation because it provides an unparalleled opportunity to delve deeper into the essence of a person, to authentically present their truth. However, art is not solely created to fulfil aesthetic desires. True art yearns to uncover the truth, to reveal the hidden depths within individuals. A portrait also possesses the remarkable ability to freeze time, immortalising a mortal being. Through portrait, we can envision the personalities of those who have departed, and the manner in which contemporary artists depict them speaks volumes about the prevailing trends and artistic styles of that era.The face of an individual serves as a canvas upon which life etches its experiences. This is precisely why I find great fascination in portraying elderly individuals. I choose to depict people who are unfamiliar to me, as they embody certain universal phenomena, such as the wisdom acquired through the passage of time, contemplation on the meaning of life, and a serene acceptance of matters beyond our control. These qualities emanate from the characters I portray, breathing life into their visages and allowing their stories to unfold before our eyes. Sometimes I feel like a portrait is a screaming painting - which cries out loudly about what a human being is. Portrait is really a special kind of image.
