Esoteric surrealism in mysterious fiction paintings that help to look into

It is no secret to anyone that human nature is mysterious, and can manifest itself both from the light and from the dark side. Therefore, it is very difficult to overestimate the unique paintings of the Polish surrealist painter Tomash Alain Koper in terms of philosophical overtones inherent in each of his paintings. In them, everyone can recognize himself, or rather, the state of his inner self. We are so accustomed to conceal our essence under the mask that sometimes it seems that this mask has already grown to us forever. And only sincere feelings are sometimes able to break it …

Inspired by human nature and the mysteries of the universe, Tomas Koper lives in a world of rich imagination. His paintings are full of symbols relating to the human psyche and relations with the outside world. Each of his canvas pushes the viewer to reflect on the essence of human life. And also directs our thought to the understanding that sometimes both light and darkness can rule the vast world.

The philosophical meaning of the paintings of Tomash is that through them the artist shows the transformation of human development from birth to the end of his life’s journey. He writes about how we are growing up, we become more closed, hiding from each other, as indeed, from ourselves, true feelings under the outer shell, which gradually envelops our souls, turning them into stone blocks.

He also writes the very feelings that can destroy the stone bark from the inside, turning it into fragile scales. It shatters when a person allows his real feelings and desires to break free. And the feelings of becoming a connecting thread with yourself and other people allow you to feel alive. For by allowing ourselves to live with true values, we learn to trust, feel the taste of life, openly rejoice, sincerely love.

Through his paintings, the artist strives to make humanity look into his subconscious, rethink his life path and look at death. “In my work I try to reach the subconscious. I want to keep the viewer’s attention for a longer time. Make him think, ”says the artist himself.

The unique compositional designs of Tomas’s paintings are simply stunning with their fantastic, unrealistic artistic vision of the plot. And the artist feeds his inspiration through the knowledge of the mysteries of the universe and the spirituality of all living things.

As for the color scale of the master’s paintings, I would like to note a rather restrained color and at the same time an amazing contrast. Dark and earthy colors are cut by fiery bright bursts of light streams, which penetrate from the depths of the picture plane itself. The effect of hot coals under the rubble of stone bark is simply amazing. This is the author’s style, handwriting and the uniqueness of the painter. Through his surrealist paintings, he touches the viewer’s subconscious, forcing him to look at the canvases again and again.
A bit about Tomasz Alena Koper (born in 1976)

Tomasz Alen Kopera (Tomasz Alen Kopera) hails from Kozukhovo (Poland). Like all children, from childhood he loved to draw. However, Tomash had to master the profession of civil engineer and get a degree from the Technological University of Wroclaw. But as they say – you will not get away from fate. Despite technical education, Tomas Koper becomes a professional artist.
Since 2005, he moved to Ireland, where in his own studio he creates his wonderful paintings.
