One but Two


Acrylic painting on Fabriano paper 56.5 x 71 cm



  • Cubism Influence: The fragmented and geometric representation of facial features and other elements suggests an influence from Cubism, where objects are broken down into geometric shapes and reassembled in an abstract form.
  • Expressionism: The use of bold, intense colors and exaggerated features conveys strong emotions, characteristic of Expressionism.
  • Surrealism: The overlapping and intertwining faces create a dream-like, surreal quality, blending reality with imagination.


  • Color Palette: The artwork uses a wide range of vibrant colors, including reds, blues, yellows, and greens. These colors are applied in a way that draws the eye across the canvas, creating a dynamic and engaging visual experience.
  • Lines and Shapes: Strong, angular lines and a variety of geometric shapes dominate the composition. The lines are both vertical and diagonal, guiding the viewer's gaze and creating a sense of movement.
  • Symmetry and Balance: Despite the abstract nature, there is a sense of balance in the artwork. The two faces are positioned symmetrically, with each side mirroring certain elements while differing in others, creating harmony within the complexity.
  • Texture and Patterns: There are numerous textures and patterns within the painting, achieved through varied brush strokes and color applications. These add depth and interest to the composition.


  • The merging of two faces into one can symbolize various themes such as duality, unity, or the multifaceted nature of identity.
  • The vibrant colors and abstract forms might represent the complexity of human emotions and experiences.
