Artist’s Statement

In the world of oppression, Art tries to create a new meaning for the salvation of mankind. Thus, a work of art in its historical process can be a way to escape, and it is not unlikely that a painting by an original artist from old times, becomes the dream of a young girl in present time. A dream that may never come true, but is a guiding light towards the truth that can recreate the meaning of liberation.
