Igor Postash's art offers a slice of life that often prompts laughter, even in the quiet confines of an art gallery. His work is reminiscent of iconic or religious painters from centuries past, but his scenes are taken from everyday life, spiced up with an oddball cast of characters and settings. His main themes are love, work and pleasurable relaxation, and his tonque-in-cheek style is well suited to the May-December couples that often populate his paintings.

 

All I can say about my art is that it goes through my heart and soul and then through my brush. Sometimes it’s hard to see the tiny connections between all of the images in my paintings and this is the main idea in my art.

While I’m doing my paintings I think about the people who will look at them and make up their own stories about them and maybe smile at the end. Through laughter we rise above all obstacles that life throws in our path. Through the insanity of metaphorical humor one can avoid going insane and survive in an insane world.

If even only one passerby of one hundred steps but for a moment to contemplate, raise an eyebrow or two, or to even smile at my paintings I will be happy knowing that my creative efforts have been worthwhile.
