“People are the centre of Gazmend Freitag’s pictures. Some art critics say such a focus is antiquated, while many art enthusiasts see it even as modern. Objectively speaking, the topic is timeless, and so eternal.
Portraits are more than photographs, documenting more than just current affairs. Portraits are pieces of a puzzle from an era filtered through the artist’s vision. Gazmend Freitag draws and paints portraits, contributing to the cultural history of the 21 st. century.”
