“BOLLI BLAS: DREAMING WITH HER EYES WIDE OPEN”

Published

on

BOLLIS BLAS

BOLLI BLAS ~ “My work conveys abstract ideas in a simple manner. I am interested in emotional impact and want to put across my values and beliefs and at the same time force others to question their own.”

“I work mainly with large oil on canvas pieces. Many of my paintings feature wide-eyed characters which I call Bollis. They look right back at the viewer, representing eyes as windows of the soul, holding a mirror to modern society. The philosophical concepts, combined with simple, cheerful representation create a very personal universe searching emotional reaction in the viewer.”

“Through my art, I want to change the world by representing my vision of utopia, a place where ethnicity and backgrounds don’t matter, where we are all the same, equal, where there is no prejudice, hatred or war. I paint people of all colours and sexual orientations. There are no rules, just Bollis dreaming with their eyes wide open.”

“My art is inspired by the street art, crafts and small galleries I saw on my backpacking travels everywhere from Guatemala to Peru and Zambia as much as the established artists in MOMA in New York.”

Bollis have been exhibited in NYC, London and Milan and will be displayed in upcoming exhibitions in NYC, Nice, Paris and Madrid. Make sure to stay in tuned with her creative success.
