This is the world, The admiration of false myth and folk’s tale is a painting made
on cardboard with acrylic and oil colours, 56 x 81 cm, 2020. I was inspired by the
negative world issues of nowadays. I did a line drawing first with Ink and brush on
paper, then I transferred the outlines with tracing paper on a grey primed cardboard. I then added a few layers with acrylic, then I completed this painting with oil
The Futurist 1 and 2 are 50,5 x 40,5 cm paintings on canvas, 2020,both paintings are made from a sketching series of my sketchbooks. I transformed the faces in an abstract and futuristic perspective directly on the
canvas first with pencil and afterward I painted only with oil.
