Florian Metzler is an Austrian contemporary artist who is well known by his social media handle Flowsofly. He creates magical artworks with minimal, raw lines. The artist sketches sensual feminine figures and intimate moments with just a few thin black lines. “I am often inspired by women I see on the street. Just the way she briefly smiles while reading a book in the metro is enough for me to get inspired just by that – the moment that expresses that unique personal charm, something that can keep a man awake at night.“ said Flow.
His artworks express something complex in an effortless way and give enough freedom to the viewer to form their own interpretation. “I try to give an idea of incompleteness through my drawings. Any type of art should trigger something in you, be it a quote, a person, or a memory…” said the artist.
The artist doesn’t like to reveal much about himself. “I usually don’t reveal much about myself. That is very much on purpose because often you can’t “un-know” something, and whatever you know or want to know or think you know colors your perception. I like my work to be in the foreground, and even that shouldn’t be complete but only inspire a viewer, tickle her/his thoughts, ideas, mood, feels about a situation.” said Flowsofly.
