ARTISTIC PHILOSOPHY :

Simplification is the key word for the work of Andrea Malar in original etching, monotype, metallic sculpture...

Simplification in creation and artistic expression but as well in the materials chosen to work with.

The artistic activities of Andrea Malar are multiple but his goalhis to find the perfect symbiosis between sculpture and graphical signs.

The artist is fascinated by the purity of the elements of his rusty metal sculptures and by the absolute simplicity of the graphic compositions of his etchings.
