To me art is what evolves from my creative process. It begins in my mind and is developed through the hands onto a visible surface. It becomes a spiritual encounter. The intention of this series is to show “my people in motion”. These paintings transmit a message of protest because they represent a utopian ideal world of happiness, friendship, peace, love and harmony that should prevail. I like to use bright colors and heavy textures, it is a way of adding strength to my almost ethereal men stepping, dancing, and running on the canvas. We are constantly connected through the internet, Facebook, Twitter and iPhone, etc., but we are not together. My people hold hands, look and touch each other and give each other a shoulder. They are in motion but they are not alone. I create individuals with no identity but with clear personality. It is easy to spot the young, the old, the happy and sad, the energetic, the fat and so on.
