About The Artwork

This art seeks to evoke a mix of realism and surrealism, with contrasting elements that try to capture the viewer's attention. The depiction of a realistic toucan holding a Cheetos snack with its beak open is intriguing in itself, but the highlight of the scene is the poorly made prosthesis that replaces the top part of the bird's beak. This dented aluminum can prosthesis creates a striking contrast with the exuberant and colorful beauty of the toucan. It is a representation of imperfection and fragility, as it is visibly different and less functional than the original beak. The use of discarded materials, such as aluminum cans, also brings a message of environmental impact and awareness of irresponsible disposal. This illustration can be interpreted as a representation of the interaction between nature and human interference. The toucan, an exotic and endangered species, is affected by human actions that resulted in the need for an improvised prosthesis. This can be seen as a reminder of the negative consequences our actions can have on wildlife and the environment. At the same time, the scene can also evoke a sense of resilience and adaptation. The toucan continues to enjoy a snack, come up with ways to survive even in challenging circumstances. This can symbolize nature's ability to adapt and nature as well as about resilience and adaptability in the face of adversity. The color pencils needs time and patience to bring a real good final piece of arte. I love this technique.

I´m working as a professional illustrator since 1991 and started in 2007 my popart style working.. As illustration is based on tradicional art, the practice in different art techniques helped me to find my own artistic style. Nowadays I´m using pop art to represent my ideas. I always has appreciated stained glasses. My pop arts are a review of this art style combining its colors and contrasts with digital production and now my painted sustainable popart . The structure of my artworks are based on stained glass style with the main theme to the foreground and background with icons reinforcing the foreground idea.
