Art Description

Painting: Acrylic and Paper on Canvas.

The Sinbad voyages are a series of paintings inspired by the daring sailor of the Arabian Nights. Adventurous journeys, in which Sinbad lands in unknown and surprising countries, meets every kind of danger, faces absurd and paradoxical situations. He is always able to return to his city, Baghdad, from which he promises to never leave again, to enjoy the wealth accumulated in his travels. But, after some time spent in comfort, he can’t resist the desire to return to the sea. There are seven Sinbad journeys in the Arabian Nights, but I continue to make him travelling, and I think to faithfully interpret his nature. In this painting some elements, like cities and stars, are executed in collage. With the exception of road maps, they are all designed and cut out by me, and imbedded in acrylic medium.
