About The Artwork

In this work I have focused on the story of two lovers " The lovers of Teruel " . The legend of the lovers of Teruel (Spain) narrates the love story between two young people from Teruel, Isabel de Segura and Juan Martínez de Marcilla, an impossible love due to social status, if you want to know more about this beautiful story you can delve into it through the following link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lovers_of_Teruel. The sculpture is made up of two intertwined human figures, attached to a metal base, the bodies are made of wire, their white color changes to blue in the dark thanks to a luminescent treatment that makes them shine in dark areas. The pictorial treatment is composed of various layers of paints, pigments and heavy layers of glossy varnish to protect the entire process. To send the piece, first the piece is wrapped with a thin layer of acid-free paper, then it is covered with bubble wrap so that the piece is highly protected. At the end of these two packaging processes, I build a box exclusively for the work, with a very thick cardboard capable of withstanding possible incidents in transport and that the work reaches your hands in perfect condition.

Hi my name is David León, also known as @ds.leon, I am a multidisciplinary artist with a primary focus on figurative sculpture and also have experience in painting. My story began on a stormy night in the summer of 1979 in Barcelona when a 21-year-old woman gave birth to her first child, a small, big-headed, and hairy boy. I studied in different traditional private schools, where "donkey, the letter only enters with blood" was the motto. Throughout those years, I was humiliated and mistreated, which led me to hide my connection with the plastic arts out of shame and embarrassment. At the age of 14, my mother, after spending a fortune on "RUBIO" handwriting notebooks, decided to take me to a psychologist. Yes, I had dyslexia, so I couldn't write or draw, let alone read. With that diagnosis, a new chapter of my life began: a teacher taught me how to write again. I continued my high school studies and graduated as a Technician in Metal Construction. During those years, the explosion of rap and graffiti took place, which captivated me. In 1994, Montana Colors arrived in paint stores, and armed with the most colorful sprays of the time, I started painting walls like crazy. Although my artwork was not very good, I continued to do it impulsively because I felt an internal need to express myself. Some considered me an artist, but for others, I was simply a vandal dirtying the walls of Barcelona. The years passed, and punk conquered me: the music, the concerts, the libertarian collectives, the squats... They kept me away from the art world for some time. It was another way to express myself to a society that not long ago had emerged from a dictatorship. This time, the materials and mediums were the same, but the colors and messages were different: blacks, reds, and yellows. It was a rebellious youth filled with demands for labor rights, gender equality, discontent with wars and hard drugs, among other things. Following my curiosity and need to express what I feel, my unique way of seeing life and what surrounds me, the day came when I transitioned from the street to exhibition halls to explain and share my story and concerns with a different kind of audience through art.
