From the catalog about my work –
“The cycle “History re-painting” by Muhamed Kafedžić is set apart from the other works at the exhibition because it treats the history of art and painting techniques as a topic in itself, although certain contextual connotations related to different epochs and cultures are not to be neglected. “Poster Boy – Young Samurai Flautist” clearly refers to “The Flutter” by Edouard Manet (it even matches its dimensions), but retains the main characteristics of Japanese graphic art. Muhamed Kafedzic finds the universal value in Japanese Ukiyo-e worldview (the view of a floating world). He makes his research into various epochs and traditions, and especially into different media, from Japanese woodcut and Western classical painting to modern graphic design, comics and street art. Oversized paintings and massive street murals by Muhamed Kafedžić show a possibility of the creative process of translation and transformation.” – full text about other selected artists and their works available on Sarajevo Culture Bureau web site.
