Ukata Arua: Painting "Kissing Elephants", unframed

At a first glance, the painting looks as a large-size, abstract mosaic. Only at a second glance, one sees the shapes of two elephants facing one another, formed by the meandering lines and colorful elements of the painting. The artist does not ask about "concreteness" or "abstraction"; his work aims - as always the African art - first of all a fantastic illustration of symbol, of the essential, the core of nature.

Giclée on canvas, stretched on stretcher frame. Limited edition, 199 exemplars, numbered and signed on the backside. Format 100 x 100 cm. Ars Mundi exclusive edition.
