DO ASTRONAUTS NEED ART? 3 is an artwork by the Croatian artist Zoran Šimunović from the series DO ASTRONAUTS NEED ART?.

All the artist’s series are intrinsically linked to each other, he considers each series to be an evolution of the previous one.

The DO ASTRONAUTS NEED ART? series is a reflection on the importance of art, the par excellence visual expression of Man. For the artist, art is everywhere, in all areas of reality and all spheres of human activity. By choosing to paint everyday common objects, the artist encourages the public to consider the artistic potential in everything around them.

In this piece, pink clearly stands out. This colour is particularly dear to the artist, who declares: “The house reflects my personality, and I am an incorrigible optimist. I always say that I don’t see the world through rose-tinted glasses, but through rose-tinted eyes. This colour makes me incredibly happy, so I try to include it in my artworks and house”.

For Zoran Šimunović, art is above all play and pleasure. His vision of life is extremely optimistic, through his work he hopes to recall positive emotions or happy personal memories in the viewer’s mind. To that end, he uses refined combinations of bright and attractive colours in his paintings. The artist takes inspiration from his surroundings and ordinary objects that are part of his life: toys, fruits, furniture, plants… These common but important little things attract his attention and creativity and feature in his paintings.

“Some of the things I paint date back to my childhood, others are more recent. Their age is not important. What is, is the emotion they arouse in me. Sometimes it’s hard for artists to bare their intimacy and show it to the world, but I have no problem with that. Maybe because I am always happy with my paintings, they give me pleasure and happiness and I hope they have the same effect on the public.”

Thanks to a unique and harmonious composition combining figurative themes and abstract elements, Zoran is able to create imaginary and poetic worlds, loaded with symbolic interrelations that need to be deciphered. These narrative and introspective paintings detail his memories, his emotions and dreams but at the same time, they echo with the viewer, thanks to the personal interpretation they provoke.

The artwork is sold framed. Dimensions of the framed artwork: 182 x 152 cm.
