Shelter, Emotional Digital Art

About duality in feelings.

Shelter by Mario Sanchez Nevado


Another digital illustration conceived form the photo session I had with Cristina Martin (such an inspiration!). Since I created my work “Medea” for the exhibition “Arkhaía” with Hysterical Minds (also featuring Cristina), I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of duality. That drew me to work again with elemental iconography such as fire and water, to depict the contradiction of having opposite feelings in the same state of mind. I have not been able to develop the idea further yet, in terms of being able to put what I think into words, and therefore I’m creating some more illustrations based on these ideas. I hope to be able to develop a consistent manifesto about this, both visually and textually, but we’ll have to wait 🙂
