art12signs is an artistic movement that aims to develop and spread astrological awareness. 12 signs of the zodiac is the series of paintings which was created in 1994 as an attempt to depict zodiacal energies, expressed by male and female figures in poses imitating constellations of the Zodiac and by interplay of colors. The post-impressionist painting surface is meant to emphasize the spiritual sphere.
In 2014, in the spirit of art12signs, an astrological photo series was created, this project was composed of taking pictures with a smartphone camera 365 days a year and to post it on Facebook wall. The photos were to document changes in nature occurring in four seasons of the year.
Each month, on the day the zodiac sign changes a special photograph was taken in which the landscape played an crutial role. Astrological elements form in the shapes of architectural details, in order to discover them it’s necessary to use the subconscious.
In the year 2020, the Chinese zodiac series has started. It concerns 60 works created in the form of a drawings which present a compilation of 12 Chinese signs portrayed in each of five elements. Similar to Western zodiac painting series, male-female poses are meant to be transmitters of astrological energies. Backgrounds are the carriers of the elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.
art12signs are astrological presentations in all areas of art, they are not intended to be duplications and transformations of known zodiacal symbols. The aim of the movement is to go beyond the limits of public awareness, to search new forms of expression that will have an impact on raising the social artistic and astrological sensitivity.
