Artistic Portfolio of Stàn - A Brief Introduction:
Here you will find a brief introduction about the Stàn and his artistic portfolio.
I have now been working as an art painter for over 20 years. I have completed an education in architecture with painting at the University in Vienna, but I have mainly developed and acquired the art of painting mainly. Many things can be learned or acquired through a good teacher - some knowledge. However, knowledge can only be gained through one's attempts and failure.
Only through constant experimentation and development of technique, vision, and style can mastery be achieved. Therefore, I see myself as a painter from the beginning to mastery in the old tradition.
Not least because of this, I have kept original abstract works and these complete techniques at a distance because, in my opinion, it has nothing to do with skill or true art. Of course, one can have divided opinions about it, which is also good and right. In any case, you will find only paintings committed to the traditional approach with me.
In the last years, I have concentrated more on the old master technique and, in particular, the renaissance painting - and found or invented my new technique, which I call Dietro Aria. Therefore, most of the newer paintings shown here are painted in my new style, "Dietro Aria." It is a kind of sfumato technique that I invented in the last few years. I hope you like my paintings, and of course, I am open to commission work.
Dietro aria is a unique layering technique combined with a secret oil formula that I invented after studying the techniques of old masters, especially Leonardo da Vinci's sfumato technique, which does not use solvents.
I found that mastery of the old masters lies in knowing what to do and how to do it - and not so much in chemistry as many people, even art experts, believe. Sometimes simplicity is the most complex thing to figure out.
All the best and God's blessing
