Paintings by Stephan Doitschinoff

Artist Stephan Doitschinoff combines elements of the Afro-Brazilian culture with religious iconography to produce these visually striking paintings.

“What at first seems to be a visual narrative impregnated with either religious or esoteric references, under a deeper look, reveals a process of appropriation of structure and re signification. Doitschinoff removes the mystic and ideological content, in order to appropriate the format and add symbols created from personal reflection in accordance to contemporary themes, for instance, the ‘corporative democracy’, the role of plants and psychoactive substances in the western society, and the lack of control provoked by strict social systems that do not allow room for the whole individual self-development.”
