About Oscar Manuel Vargas

I am searching for poetry, Poetry is one of the clues that guides us through the intricate maze. Where are we From?, Who are we?, where are we going?,I want these ancient questions to be in the mind of the viewers.
Through the study of the Surrealist Movement, I discovered an infinite way to explore. I have concluded that REALITY is everyday SURREALISM. If we want to keep our brain alive and sane, ART is the effective exercise. EACH PHOTO, DRAWING AND PAINTING IS A PAGE OF AN EXPLORER'S LOG BOOK.

Each art work is a page of an explorer's log book.
