verified icon


I was born in 1974,Riga. When I was a child, I was deeply inspired by the cities old architecture and its different moods in different seasons.At that time everything seemed to live its own life and had its special spirit. Dark Jugend style houses in Autumn evenings became alive in feeble lamplight,which was swinging in the wind above the street.Those mythical siluets and symbols at that time had much greater influence on me than the bypassing Soviet Era. In 2004 I acquired Masters degree in painting,Latvian Academy of Art. Abstract Art is the means for me to let the spectator widen his or her perception of ones self and the spiritual Universe it inhabits.The sole intention and porpose of my work is to communicate the unknown in my subcounscious mind, to find the connection with our ,as humans, true self, which I believe is something in common, we all posess. Dr.phil.Ingrid Gardill on my art: We appreciate this artist because he executes his paintings with open working methods and with techniques that he is always developing. His large-format, abstract paintings are convincing because of their radical formal language, which is characterized by vitality. Compositionally, he mostly dispenses with a "classical" structure, such as a pictorial center. Instead, he allows his forms to take on a life of their own, or sometimes they enter into a surprising connection with the depth of the background.His liveliness and joy of experimentation are always coupled with a virtuoso use of painterly gestures. Even if he is inspired by chance and open to novelty, he leaves nothing to pure chance, but guides his painting tools skillfully and with a sure hand. Lively gestures are withdrawn or additionally accentuated until an expressive form is created. Sometimes Gustavs Filipsons also takes stencils, which he intuitively surrounds with color in many layers. In doing so, he shifts them many times until the resulting structures show the right tension. The works are never boring, no two are alike. Moreover, his paintings dispense with a concrete message in favor of a kind of introspection.
