'The Pebble Boat' by Alfred Krupa - a stunning abstract contemporary ink drawing with a traditional Japanese calligraphic design, intense movements, and highly emotional style. The artist name is recognized for his uniquely conceptual approach and connection between Eastern traditions and Western expressionism. This artwork represents the actual pebble (digger) boat on the Kupa river in Croatia.
Alfred Freddy Krupa is a contemporary master of the New Ink Art Movement (Aesthetica Magazine, UK), who promotes and appropriates a powerful Eastern culture of ink drawing among Western countries.
Krupa's artistic style has been influenced by two major forces: the early years that he spent learning from his grandfather painter Alfred Krupa Sr. (1915-1989), academic study of painting at the Zagreb Academy of Fine Arts and postgraduate research in Japan, mastering the foundation of ink paintings, and, later, a political change in his homeland, Croatia, with a change of establishment, chaos, and social challenges. These circumstances transformed his style: from poetic subjects and picturesque landscapes into expressionism art, movements and intense use of color. Following the formal artistic tradition of the Eastern school that suggests painting in one continuous movement representing the flow of thoughts and emotions of the artist, Alfred Freddy Krupa combines it with the Western expressionism and creates his unique style and aesthetics. This new approach brought him popularity and recognition of art critics and collectors in Europe and the US.
His minimalist artworks are honest, complex, and multi-layered. 'I seek a higher expression and that is at the end of the process of multidimensional reduction to “essential forms”: a sort of neo- or re-minimalism.' - Alfred Freddy Krupa
