"20"

Today I have finished this painting..It's caleld " 20". It is probbaly the first painting I make that is based on something real, something that happened some months ago in the US and left us all with a broken heart. In that day 20 children where murdered while at school.I cant stop thinking that it could have been my children there, but still, its a problem that affects all of us.

 

 

This is my tribute to them.To all of their families and relatives.

Jazz Ball Charity Festival

Recently I come to know about the " Jazz Ball Charity festival".

 

"Jazz' was a very special person.More than a extremely talented musician, he was a person that everyone loved and enjoyed being with.After a very hard period he lost the batlle against cancer about a year ago. For all the people I've talked to , they all agree that Jazz was a person that touched others in different ways.

This festival is to raise funds and also to honor this great man, Jazz, and evrything that he meant to people and his loved ones.

 

I, as an artist, was invited to participate in the Event, by donating one of my paintings to this great cause. I believe no painting will be good enough for it, but I'll do my best. For this great cause, for the people who suffer daily from this desease and..for Jazz.

 

 

 

NEW EXHIBITION IN GTO, MEXICO!!

New exhibition in GTO, Mexico!

 

 

Currently I'm helding an exhibition in Guanajuato, mexico, at the " Hosteria" a renowed gallery where 8 of my works are

being showed to the public for 3weeks. The subjects are pretty much the colours, the trip of a woman that tries to find herself

her place in her life.

 

 

 

Waiting...

My last piece of work depicts a woman laying against a chair...holding on to something, in wich she creates her own world, her own reality.

In life, we also do the same, we create our owns realities where to live, what to do, what to dream..My worlds are created based on those feelings, and those emotions.

This painting reflects my vision  on those worlds.

 

WAITING...

O Almocreve

 Since I've met Luis Campos, a great cumplicity happened between us. Because we are both artists, at our own way, because we have different ways to see life, and because we could both work together in different projects.

When I first heard about the "O Almocreve" I was attracted to the way it was written, the main character was in fact very appealing.Then the book came to my hands and I had the privilege to be the first to read it.The reading went on and on, and I was more and more imagining how it would be to be in Barry Brown's shoes.

Then the opportunity came where I was asked to draw the covers to the book. I was thrilled! Being almost finished with it, I could feel and see things the way he did (Barry Brown). So I thought about  lines and white sketches for the cover..Minimalist they say. It can be. But it shows the true essence of an "Almocreve", where he brings feelings and emotions to the people he visits and touches.

 

Thank you Luís Campos for the privilege to  be part of it!.
