Defrim Jupa is a self taught artist working as a full time painter. His works includes a collection of surreal imagery through the blending of abstraction and realism.
His work is all about beauty emerged from the snaps of the moments buried down in his memory. Women’s figure, different objects and colors, nature and especially flowers are the cause of those snaps which later take a shape on the canvas creating a story with a doorway for the viewers to step in.
His painting process begins with a simple spray paint layer, or in case of portraits, with a pencil sketch. He tries to give a shape to what he sees in his mind, which then develops and changes continuously as the memory clears and becomes more vivid. Being so hard for him to decide between realism and abstract to express his feelings, he decided to mix them both and create a surreal image. Half of the painting is so realistically painted with oils and the other part is connected by an abstract with an acrylic base or real life objects like plastic flowers and petals creating the effect of a three dimensional painting. Effects that he uses as a bridge for the viewers to dive in the painting.
