His ArtShefqet Avdush Emini is an all-round artist who creates baked bronze varnish clay sculptures, drawings and last but not least paintings. In both exhibitions there have been presented several paintings of his hand. Having a look at these paintings means to make a mental journey on many levels. His style of painting, the compositions he makes, the way he is using colors in combination with his compositions, the way is using paint itself as a material (oil on canvas, acryl on canvas), and the stories he want to tell. His painted portraits and figures do often not have titles, which mean that Shefqet gives you a change to make up your own thoughts and feelings. It also gives you an opportunity to travel away in time or place. Sometimes his work might remind you to one of the famous girls of the Dutch master Vermeer, to Mozart, to people in pain, or grieve, people coming from Kosovo, coming from wherever? All kind of moods do come along your eyes and thoughts. His paintings are multi-interpretable. Like they want to tell you something about the past and the present. Besides this you can notice Shefqet’ energy while painting, using his paintbrush as a medium for his own inner world. He is a painter with flair, which can be interpreted as (abstract) expressionism, and gives in combination with his classical touch a very interesting and lively result. You can also notice Shefqet’ knowledge of the Dutch masters like Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh and the Cobra group, like Corneille for example. In Shefqet ’art is a colorful world of people, roots, moods, tradition, and life coming together.
