Yes!  We finally made it, in the final day, to Adrian Ghenie exhibition.  C.A.C. (Centro de Arte Contemporaneo) in Malaga hosted for three months the work of this young and very talented Romanian painter and of course we wouldn’t miss it for the world. I am not an art critic and I’m not specialized in analyzing and interpreting art but Adrian Ghenie‘s  understanding of history with explosion of lines and colors enchanted my eyes. The artist’s interpretation of some well known characters who influenced the history and the world is intriguing and powerful in the same time. The deformed portraits and overlapping features of Van Gogh, Hitler and Ceausescu are unmistakable and easy recognizable, with Adrian Ghenie‘s geniality drawing a  fine line between reality and fiction. With palette knives and stencils, the talented painter brings us into the world of realism interlaced with imagination.
