"Underground" is an abstract painting that utilizes a variety of colors and techniques to create a composition that lacks a clear representation of real-world subjects. The upper portion of the painting features a section of white drips against a dark background. To the right, there's an area with lighter markings and scribbles over a faint background. A striking yellow line runs horizontally in the middle, separating the upper portion from the lower.


The lower section presents a mix of diverse color patches and textures. A dark brown or black area dominates the lower left, while adjacent to it, one can see sections that include reds, yellows, and blues, suggesting an interplay of warmth and coolness. There are traces of what might be brush strokes or various tools used to apply or scrape paint. Certain areas show evidence of layering, where colors overlap one another, creating depth and complexity.


The whole piece exudes a sense of controlled chaos and invites the viewer to interpret the interwoven colors and forms according to their own perception. The painting is framed in a gallery floating frame, which encloses the vibrant and emotionally charged composition.
