This is the newest, more minimalist, less urban art, and more contemporary art creation. The Geisha has accompanied our art works ever since the beginning and for the past 5 years had changed a lot in the process. Together with her, we have been growing, developing, and evolving.
We started with the Geisha being quite traditionally drawn: with the face, the traditional hairdo, the make-up, and the kimono. We first started to experiment with her outfit, dressing her up like a doll in different costumes, depending on the occasion. Through this kind of dressing up of the Geisha, we gave her different qualities and characteristics that made her come across as belong to specific subcultures.
Then besides the dress we began to change her context: not only through the choice of the background and symbols included in the painting, but also through giving her or surrounding her with different objects that made various pop culture references.
At one point we decided to remove the eyes by painting a line over them, then we removed her mouth by covering it with a mask, and that was long before the covid pandemic hit the fan.
The Geisha to us represents this post-modern cosmopolitan urban figure with various identities, depending on the context and the situation: one day is like this, another day is like that, in fact, every moment is different! Is there that one original and true identity? We do not provide the answer to that question. As artists, we question the nature of reality by making captures of specific moments that we personally find meaningful and aesthetic. As an observer, you decide what you make of it all.
