Jacob Merl began his artistic career almost twenty years ago, first approaching music by playing different instruments, then photography, and then moving on to painting. A need for expression that grows more and more and then leads to abstract painting in 2020, which becomes its only form of art. His paintings want to retrace human emotions: from isolation, frustration, loneliness and fear to hope and reconciliation with oneself. To do this he uses colors and with them all the emotions that, looking at them, carry with them. A spontaneous and instinctive art without any kind of filter. Simple. Like the emotions that run through the soul of all of us every day.
