The last year has been a wild ride, isn’t it? The covid, the political problems, racism, war and a huge health and climate crisis that shouldn’t take any of us by surprise at this point. Due to personal reasons, I started a personal lockdown a few months before the pandemic even started. I needed to be alone, to fix myself and to find my being again the mirror. It was a rough year for all of us, can’t deny it, but some were carrying heavy emotional baggage from before.
Just when lockdown was over in my country, Spain, a few months later, the final nail was put in the coffin and I had to survive a break-up. That issue, for better or worse, gave me some more rough months, but I’m known for going forward at the face of this situations, and once again, I used art to get over it.
When I started to feel better, I could see that my mind went through something similar to what happens to matter: a series of events led me to disappear in order to find a new version of myself. I went through a process similar to the one that happens to the matter: I evaporated and vanished from the pain, I turned into liquid tears and then I transformed into a brand new, solid jewel. It’s been a hard process, but now I’m shinning brighter than ever.
So here’s the outcome of that pain and that growth, too.
I have been a bit silent these latest years regarding new art. I have been painting a lot but I decided to save everything on a drawer until the right time came: and now is the time. I’ll be publishing my new illustrations in the following weeks, so stay tuned to my social media channels. I hope you all are safe and sound in these crazy, crazy times! 🙂
