This is my inspiration, my theme as an artist. Mainly I observe big cities., the architecture, the passersby, the colourful, in short, all this, sometimes hysterical and also historical look that the city offers us. I extract from this my experiences, the visual poetics, whether drawing, painting or creating among other languages and techniques.
At this moment, quarantine, due to the emergence of a global, invisible, dangerous and harmful enemy, which makes the planet slow down everything and everyon and forces us to necessary mandatory isolation. We can only reflect, rediscover and produce.
Recording historical moments is also a function of art.
I intend to share in the SPAR studio my visual narratives about my feelings at this moment and what I perceive of the city in silence, of its emptying, and how the capitalist, consumerist society reacts.
