Ivan Slavinsky's unique artistic style does not allow attributing his work to any established school of art; his talent and mastery allow him to use freely any genre he needs at the moment. Fantastic realism is the name that art historians invented especially for him and for the phantasmagoria of our world. Slavinsky shows us the new reality: startled, we recognize in the joining of plastic enigmas, flashes of light, in the play of shadows the familiar and diverse world around us where the need for beauty, the intellect and the desire for emotional shock are equally powerful. The composition, which at first seems overloaded by details, is fully subordinated to the underlying philosophical meaning, and quoting at times helps us to find the solution and to find something new in ourselves, to think about life passing by. Look at yourself with Slavinsky's eyes and try to see and to understand how we will look in the eyes of the next generations.
