In search of purification, I scrutinise between the rage, morbid, anger and passions of my models, to achieve catharsis.
The project started in Hong Kong, when I was hosted by a person with Hikikomori syndrome.
Ancestral Mayan, Aztec and Amazon culture with themes of contemporary discrimination against native peoples.
I mix acrylic spray paint, solvent and sea sand, giving a biological effect to the texture.
Some paintings history
In the pre-Hispanic age, natural events were represented as anthropomorphic beings with a divine character.
In this painting human being becomes the son of the divine forces of nature.
Dyos bo’otik is thank you or thank God in Mayan language.
According to the Mexican worldview, after death, the deceased embarks on a four-year journey.
Once in Mictlán, the place of the dead, the soul of deceased is received by Mictlantecuhtli and Mictlancihuatl, the deities of the underworld, who announce him the end of his pains.
When I arrived in the Amazon, I saw a demonstration of indigenous Boras families.
The demonstration was against pollution, the burning of the forest and the livestock industries.
I will always remember the scared looks of families.
The painting is inspired by the photograph of Gastón, a great friend.
Hangul was created in 1443 by King Sejong of the Joseon dynasty.
He offered, to the Korean people, an alphabet to express their language, so that they no longer had to use the Chinese writing system.
It was a way of becoming independent and recovering their culture.
Ofrenda a Ixchel
Ixchel, the goddess of the moon, was one of the most important deities of the Mayan culture for her power over the life of men.
She rules the cycles of the moon and affects fertility, crops, pregnancy, childbirth, as well as love and sexuality.
