life after death
Eros & Psyque
Life after death I
|Experienced With||Public art|
My art work, which includes, photography, litography, engraving, intaglio-aquatint, silkscreen, painting, drawing and poetry, could be described as a syncretism between ancient and modern life elements; using symbols to describe the contrast and similarities among them.
I consider my art work symbolic surrealistic influenced by my ethnic roots therefore i rather use but not limited to complementary colors to reinforce these contrast also working with different materials and textures.
Otherwise, photography is generally black and white also using alternative graphic tecniques such as watercolor, silkscreen, bicromate gum and litography.
