Oil painting description


Suleiman the Magnificent. Painted 2014 to 2016 by Moldovan-born British contemporary artist, Gheorghe Virtosu, b. 1968. Oil painting, 150 cm high by 138 cm wide. 59 X 54 inches. Abstract art.

Abstract art master, Gheorghe Virtosu in his 2016 Collection of works is exploiting the evocative interrelation between color, motion, and form to create an aesthetic experience that carries a message within. The contemporary artist 's oil painting proves the connection between objective and abstract art. The artist conveys the sense of drama and action in his canvases, through the complex and vibrant painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. Thus, the artist accepts narration as an essential part of his abstract works. The oil painting title creates the bridge between his art and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but welcomes the reality into his paintings.

Suleyman the Magnificent ruled the Ottoman Empire for 46 years and doubled his territory. This was a rising period for Istanbul, as it was for the whole Empire. He had powerful protectors to help him succeed in his quest as a conqueror. Some may assume he was protected by Allah, however, most of it comes from the West in the so-called Game of Thrones of Europe.
