Contemporary art Stuttgart Karlo Grados oil painting Selbst-Po-Trait gallery Germany nude men from behind

This lifelike self-portrait with strong colors and a plastic depth shows Karlo in his passion to feel free. The painter uses a very color concept without making it appear too colorful. The background gives the picture an almost “sacred” touch, and the Jesus-like pose alludes to the artist’s critical stance towards religions. The picture was taken during a vacation in Competa near Málaga. Standing on the wall of the fence, the artist looks towards the sea. A place full of inspiration. Several years of vacation in this place create a connection that is difficult to break.
