This is one of the most beautiful and sensitive pieces that I saw at Upfest this year. The artist, Sokar Uno has created something really touching and outstanding. This is without doubt one of my favourite pieces from this year’s festival.
Sokar Uno is a young German artist who has been painting and illustrating since he was twelve. Clearly he is very talented.
There is a wonderful explanation of the approach he takes to his art on his excellent website which is really worth a visit.
I am thoroughly taken with his ‘classical’ style and would really love to see more of his work. I fear I might have to travel to Berlin to see it though. It is a real privilege to see him at work in Bristol.
