‘Portrait 34: Klimt’ is part of the ongoing series ‘Artist Portraits’ by Visual and 3D artist Roberto Voorbij. It’s a limited edition giclée print featuring the Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. The series of collages was originally commissioned by ARTISTS NOT ARMIES. All portraits of the series follow the same concept; an artist portrait in which the face of the artist is replaced by one of their most significant artworks.
“The used artwork is part of the Stoclet Frieze. Positioned in such a way that Klimt’s features coincide with the geometric elements of this abstraction, titled ‘The Knight’. The imagination is addressed directly, the abstraction is de-abstracted.” Roberto Voorbij
