Structures of the city
The author removes the colour(s) of the world under consideration and replaces them with his own.
Like in the works of Mondrian and Miro, the unreal structure seems to remain the same, but now radiates a feeling of lightness: it is fascinating to add a mysterious expression to “grey everyday life”. By doing so, some things even become fairy-tale like, others perhaps better.
