The "Female Figure" Series

The "Female Figure" series was where I challenged myself with the female body form. My goal was to do my best to depict the female body with its beauty and dignity, which wasn´t an easy task, as this motive has always been challenging for all painters throughout the history of fine art.


Regardless, the female body always carries a kind of timeless quality, beauty in itself. It´s a perfect manifestation of the female energy; it´s the symbol of the source of all creation, hence from the mother womb, everything comes to existence; it´s also an expression of power, but not power in the sense of authority or dominance as in the male energies, rather the power of sensibility and purity... As a figurative painter, it´s not uncommon to have a great desire for this quest of depicting the female body with all its beautiful qualities.

My "Female Figure" series was finished after 3 months in summer 2021. Along "Woman 01" and "Woman 02", which are the biggest paintings in the series, there are also 6 other smaller canvases. Most of them were executed after the completion of "Woman 01" and "Woman 02".
