Kroz odbojnost prema umetničkim idejama koje su postale dominantne nakon Drugog svetskog rata, kao i načina funkcionisanja sveta u savremenom društvu, razvila se frustracija prema istim idejama koje se konstantno ponavljaju već skoro polovinu veka. Sa druge strane frustracije nalazi se dečiji um, koji svet želi da vidi van okvira i šablona, ali ne uspeva u tome. Dve dijametralno suprotne strane u jednu ruku dopunjuju jedna drugu, ali je u većini slučajeva dečiji um zarobljen frustracijom ne dozvoljavajući mu da pobegne van okvira logike i stvari nametnutih tokom godina.


Slike su produkt tih sukobljenih stanja uma koji zajedno, tokom kreativnog procesa, stvaraju meditativno stanje. Kroz slike možemo sagledati bezbrižnu energiju deteta koje kroz jednostavne crteže pokušava da odbaci sve nelagodnosti. Sam proces stvaranja može naći korelaciju u istočnjačkoj kulturi, gde postoji ideja 'puštanja' stvari: ne vezivati se ni za šta, već biti otvoren ka svemu. Sama slika nema zadatak da postavlja tzv. 'nebitna' pitanja ili da pokušava da 'pametuje'. Ona postoji sama za sebe i kroz komunikaciju sa posmatračem stvara intimni odnos, jedinstven za svaku osobu. Distorzija na samim slikama predstavlja frustraciju i ima ulogu da poremeti to bezbrižno stanje uma.


Slike su rađene u jednostavnom maniru, kroz ravne, čiste površine popunjene intenzivnim bojama. Banana kao glavni karakter ima zadatak da se nosi sa frustracijama i da nas od njih štiti.

Bogdan Stefanović je rođen u Jagodini 1993. godine. Završio je osnovne akademske studije na Fakultetu umetnosti u Nišu, odsek slikarstvo, a trenutno je na master studijama na Akademiji umetnosti u Novom Sadu. Svoj prvi video rad „Život" je izlagao u Beogradu i Lisabonu. Od 2015. godine je počeo da proučava kvantnu fiziku, koja mu je otvorila nova polja u razmišljanju. Takođe, 2015. je dobio nagradu Evropske mreže za digitalnu umetnost i nauku, uz pomoć koje je 2016. izlagao svoju prvu interaktivnu audio-vizuelnu instalaciju „Frequency Chamber" na prvoj 'Art and Science' izložbi u Srbiji. Pored interaktivnih instalacija bavi se i slikanjem kao glavnim medijem izražavanja.

Starting with a resistance to ideas in art that have been dominant since the end of World War II, together with how the contemporary world functions, a certain frustration regarding these same, repetitive ideas arose. On the other hand, there is the childlike mind-set that wants to see the world outside of its limitations, but doesn't succeed at doing so. These opposing concepts on one hand complement each other, but in most cases the "child's mind" is confined by the frustration of not being allowed to escape the frame of rationality and what it had been taught throughout the years.
The paintings are a product of those opposed states of mind that as a result of this duality also have a meditative quality. The KAWAI.NOT paintings allow the viewer to perceive the carefree demeanour of a child through simplified drawings that reference Zen culture and the idea of letting go as the best way to further prosper. The frustration is further depicted through the distortion of the perceived. The bright colours along with the "primitive" drawings, work together to create a joyful atmosphere and lead you and your mind in a state where you are able only to think about the painting itself, without having to answer any political or other questions that may arise, which have been posed many times before in vain.
The paintings are done in simple, clean and bright colours. The themes vary and stem from personal imagination to the reproduction of well-known works of art. As the main character, the Banana represents a figure that deals with frustrations that come along the way. The Banana is there to protect us all.
