Merging Reality and Imagination: Rethinking Everyday Actions in Masa Sallai's Art

Masa Sallai is a student at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

"I most of the time depict characters who are in the center, whom interact with their surrounding.

I like to treat the sourrounding the same way as my figures, giving livelyness, dynamic to objects.

I choose specific protagontists from concrete fields of life and play with their pecularities, stage them and show how they present themselves.

Intertwining objects with people, making them connect more on the image, unsetting physical boundaries means depiciting actions more powerfully to me.

I usually portray familiar everyday actions I encounter, then try to rethink and merge them and play with emphasizing only certain elements I find interesting.
