Miha Sarani dabbles, delves, and dives breathlessly between almost all mediums, from music to graphic novels to dripping abstract paintings. Many of his works are redolent of the figurative expertise of Old Masters, capturing chiaroscuro in a fresh light—yet he often veers into expressive territory, ranging from the comic to the empathetic, creating electric portraits of friends, acquaintances, and celebrities with equal ease.
