The show must go on-Evgen Copi Gorisek.j

Born in 1994 in Slovenia, Čopi Gorišek first came into contact with the art world at the age of 16 when he was immediately fascinated by a Pop Art exhibition. What in particularly attracted his attention were the strong colors, the subliminal messages and the ability of images to convey a message that is not just considered elitist, but that can be also easily understood by the masses. All these elements, will be elaborated by the artist during his training and artistic caree, analysing,  elaborating and transforming them until they become constitutive and fundamental elements of his paintings.

His artworks are created through the use of spray paint, oil pastels and acrylics; all techniques that allow Gorišek to create through a great technical precision, a perfect 3D effect imaginary landscape.

To enrich his complex stylistic reality there is an incessant analysis of the human to be perceived as an integral part of a society that on the one hand makes him a slave and on the other leads him to rebellion.

It is from this premise that Evgen Čopi Gorišek began to perceive the period of the lockdown as the main source of inspiration for his new production, now the protagonists of the exhibition "Only Loners Left Alive" to which Plan X Art Gallery dedicates the entire space.

Living a social life without being able to see people in real life, avoiding their contact, and most of the time seeing them through webcam chats, had a great impact on Gorišek's life perspective. It was enough the first month of isolation and a few ephemeral calls online to make the artist understand that what today is called as the "social generation" is actually a society that is strongly going in the direction of an anti-social and egocentric direction.
