Artistic Statement



Kunas' artistic journey revolves around peeling back the layers of London's urban landscape. Capturing the city's contradictions, he explores the subtle lines between freedom and surveillance, innocence and hostility. Through a blend of visual and auditory expressions, Kunas navigates the underground music scene, the abundance of street graffiti, and the many eyes of surveillance cameras. It's not just about portraying London for him; it's about revealing narratives beneath its surface—stories of a city alive with paradoxes and contrasts.

Expressing the paradoxes of London involves a diverse palette of mediums for Kunas, notably visual art and audio compositions. In his visual works, he carefully selects elements emblematic of the city, such as CCTV cameras and concrete, while transforming menacing aspects like barbed wire into playful balls. In his auditory works, Kunas creates narratives mirroring the isolating experiences one can encounter in the city. Raw sounds from the streets infuse a tangible, unfiltered reality into the compositions, creating immersive atmospheres that draw audiences into the unspoken dynamics defining London's urban identity.

Through his art, Kunas invites viewers to engage with the paradoxes and contrasts present in London. By provoking contemplation on normalised narratives, whether related to surveillance or perceptions of threat, his goal is to disrupt ingrained perspectives. Kunas strives to foster an open-ended dialogue, allowing viewers to question and explore the multiple layers that make up London's identity. The aim is to provide a nuanced exploration of the city's underground culture, encouraging viewers to uncover their own perceptions within the ever-evolving landscape.
