About the artwork Agnus Homini

Agnus Dei, the Lamb of God, symbolizes the resurrection of Christ. Agnus Homini could be understood as a reversal of this notion, both an invitation to hedonism and a criticism of hedonism. As an invitation to hedonism, the term might sound heretical to devout Christians. Agnus Homini, however, also implies those elements of the Enlightenment that led directly to the achievements of humanism. So Agnus Homini combines both: the call for a moderate hedonism. This is a philosophical attitude that could well be equated with humanism. (Hubert Thurnhofer)⁠

About the artist Ivan Iliev

"The primary aspects of my artistry are my deep love for nature and a strong connection to the late Renaissance and Baroque styles of painting. I encounter the subjects of my artwork in my everyday surroundings. The plants that have always intrigued me represent more than just their natural forms — they embody the ebb and flow of time, encompassing both growth and decay."

Born in 1951 in Burgas, Bulgaria, Ivan Iliev studied at the Art Academy in Sofia. Following his graduation, he served as an artistic editor-in-chief for several years. Since 1990, he has been living and working as an independent artist in Vienna, Austria, and has been featured in numerous international group and solo exhibitions.
