Libertango: Drawings

TRIBUTE TO PIAZZOLLA AND DRAWINGS ON MODERN MUSIC

Michael's famed Libertango. After Piazzolla series were born as his tribute to his favourite Tango Nuevo composer Astor Piazzolla who Michael believes is a genius in contemporary music. Piazzolla was able to create a new world which encompasses emotional sphere of people to vast degree. Piazzolla's is the world of life full of emotions, memories, thoughts, whispers and screams, laughs and tears, smiles and nostalgic thoughts, dreams and fantasies, all this done with superb sensitivity and taste. Michael believes that mankind is really lucky to have Piazzolla and his music. He tried to reflect on his understanding and reading Astor Piazzolla and his world in his Libertango collection. The core collection has been created by the artist in 2013, but yet before, and also thereafter he was and is creating more art works for this ongoing collection of works.
