Mark Twain once said: “What would men be without women? Scarce, sir…mighty scarce.” All of us can agree to that to the full extent. Many artists lean to the female form in their artwork, but being able to capture true emotion of the moment is something else entirely. Delicate yet articulate and strong personalities of women are something Gajus Eidi is mostly interested in. This young artist created expressive watercolor portraits series that communicate this perfectly. Within his paintings he focuses on portraying female stance, mood, and expression. All this gives the viewer an accurate clue of emotion that the story of the painting has. And it’s different every time.
How I would decribe myself in one sentence? Creativity is my weapon! This whole series is all about women. My whole life I’ve been inspired by women. Their fragile and gentle yet expressive and strong personalities that sometimes I am lucky enough to experience.
Things that inspire me the most are Nature and relationships. I love to lose myself in the quiteness and serenity of nature, it’s a some sort of rejuvinating ritual for me. And when I experience strong feelings I always want to express it and share it with the world.
I love this medium because it is a huge challenge for me. When I found watercolour, I realised how much potential it had. And to this day I am still on my way of mastering it. And the process is very enjoyable, I learn something with every painting.
My future work?! Oh boy, lots and lots to come! I have an exhibition in my mind, and soon I will scale up with the material I’m working on. Now I have a few street art projects and I plan to buy big canvases to try myself on bigger scale.
