“StereoTYPKI” Series ( 2021)
This series of paintings focuses on interpersonal relationships. It also addresses our inherent contractions' impact on relationships with others. The author calls attention to the importance of contemporary stereotypes and how they impact our perception of others and the world surrounding us. "StereoTYPKI" represent common beliefs and perceptions that influence our view of the world and our understanding of what is socially correct. The small silhouettes and the main character portrayed in the paintings differ only in size and nothing else. That is to show that we can end up on both sides of the spectrum.

We can become a victim or a perpetrator of stereotypical thinking.
