As a flash of misty light
that left me dazed and astonished
this is how I came across Andrey Tarkovsky for the very first time.
From that truly alive moment
to the next one and the next one and the other,
each time going somewhere else which I have not been before
and each time opening a locked door.
The power of art, seen as an intimate journey,
is the one that allows yourself to travel inwardly
until reaching your true nature.
Mine is the one of a child in a world of meanings and colours and for this realisation
I wish to pay an homage to the Russian film maker and artist Andrei Tarkovsky on the year of his 30th death anniversary.
Zumar7 aka Federico De Cicco presents a selection of paintings and illustrations made while being inspired by Tarkovsky’s movies as well as a reflection on the above considerations.

Zumar7 is a freelance illustrator based in Brighton; all his artworks are made by hand using various media such are inks, acrilics and pens. Often these materials make fortuitous spots, which then encourage him to create more elaborate and abstract patterns. During the past few years, he has focussed mainly on the creation of posters and images for magazines, which often address social or green issues. At the same time, he also makes more experimental images, which he develops while taking part in art shows or as personal projects. Homage to Andrei Tarkovsky – Inner Rooms is showing in the gallery ground floor. All works are available to purchase.
