About

Presenting a just arrived original oil painting by Azerbaijani artist Fidan Kim. Bohemians, is an original oil on canvas, signed, dated 2019 with an image dimension of 47 x 35 inches, just arrived from the personal collection of the artist. Please contact the gallery for additional information, pricing and availability. The artist’s description: This painting is referring to people living in beautiful golden cages since they are captivated by stereotypes of bohemian lifestyle, and when they leave these cages they don’t know how to use their beautiful strong wings. They are not capable to exist outside and walk far away from their cages, which is why their wings snugly fit their bodies almost hiding and guarding their real beauty from the gossiping society. The middle right figure is Medusa Gorgon and right next to her covering her with his huge wing is her lover Poseidon. The Ancient Greek myth about Medusa says that she was one of the trio Gorgon sisters, the only immortal one. Medusa Gorgon is famed for her snake like hair and her gaze which turns those who look at her into stone. Medusa was once a beautiful priestess of Athena, Goddess of war and wisdom. When Gorgon had a love affair with God of the sea and earthquakes Poseidon, Athena punished her. The Goddess of War turned Medusa into a hideous creature making her hair into writhing snakes and her skin was turned a greenish blue. From that day on Medusa Gorgon became a monster we all now know. Two figures next to Medusa and Poseidon are Stheno and Euryale. They are sisters of Medusa who witnessed everything, but chose to stay in the shadow covering their faces with their wings. And finally the bottom figure is Hermès, God of commerce and thieves who helped Athena and Perseus to kill Medusa Gorgon. For me this myth represents some aspects and stereotypes of Bohemian lifestyle, people hiding themselves from judgment and gossip, at the same time putting themselves into golden cages.. It also represents the forbidden love and revenge About Fidan Kim: Fidan Kim was born in Baku, Azerbaijan on the 21th of August 1997. 2014-2018 – BA FINE ARTS AZERBAIJAN STATE ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS 2018-2020 – MA FINE ARTS AZERBAIJAN STATE ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS August 2009 – “Young Talents Exploring Visual Arts” summer art courses at the Edinborough Art College August 2010 – “Art al Sole” summer art courses in Italy August 2011 - “Art al Sole” summer art courses in Italy October 2013 – a solo exhibition “The last day of the childhood” November 2014 – a solo exhibition “”Paradoxes” March 2015 – participation at a master class given by a renowned artist, Professor Inge H.
