Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Acrylic, Gouache on Paper.

Acrylic painting on Fabriano Rosaspina paper 285g./ 25x 35, cm without frame. 40x50 cm framed. / 2020

This painting is part of a series that I titled Caligramas, executed during the pandemic produced by the COVID-19 virus.
The series is inspired by the street letters of graffiti, which have been the input of my work as a graffiti writer for 18 years. In this work my intention is to turn words into images, and in that sense my exercise was to construct paintings that play between the dichotomy: image-word and word-image.
I chose to paint these small formats because they allow a very intimate approach with the letters and the viewer to feel the delicacy of the expression of graffiti, which are sometimes undervalued by the noise and visual pollution of the city.
