Flashe and latex on tyvek
259 x 495cm
Stemming from his former job as a commercial muralist, Adam Cvijanovic’s paintings combine pop kitsch with the gravitas of historical painting. Completely self-taught, Cvijanovic approaches painting with an unconventional process: using a variety of acrylic and latex household paints on Tyvek, his vast images become transportable frescoes, giant architectural interventions that can be remodelled to fit various gallery spaces. Subverting the utopian connotations of monumental painting, Cvijanivic’s tableaux embrace the serene and idyllic while portraying haunting scenes of desolation.
