About | "The Guardian of the Constellations" is a sculpture that continues my concept of the Invisible World, which is a theme that I have only recently begun to write about, but started many years before ...
I think that "The Guardian of the Constellations" symbolises something that can only be seen by heart. 'He' is everywhere and nowhere. He is not a god and a ruler for no one. He is only watching, guarding and escorting our Universe from its beginnings.
Because I created this sculpture with an intention to make a really good influence on someone's living space, I gave it a function of a tea light candle and essential oil burner. You can use it for both or just to softly illuminate your room at night.
About the artist
Andrej Mratinković was born in 1984 in a town Celje in Slovenia. He graduated at the Department of Fine Arts at University of Maribor in 2011. When he decided to study fine art, he quickly came to realize that his work will also be to deeply analyze all the components that will give him an artwork that he truly strive for; and for that he would need a lot of exploration, experimentation and experience. A turning point in his artistic development was the discovery of artworks by sculptor Mirsad Begić, who inspired him with his incredible work, personal mythology and introduced him to natural materials, especially "coffee".
Mratinković's main fields of art creating are drawing, painting, small sculptures, digital art and graphic design. He would define himself as an "experimental artist" who has been intensively experimenting with various themes, styles and materials since he "decided to enter the world of art."
His work is often linked with concepts like: imagination, primacy, archaism, mysteriousness, mysticism and poetics.
He lives and works in his home town Celje in Slovenia (Europe).
