Souls of a trip, this is THE biggest canvas I’ve ever painted on so far, at first it seemed humongous, now I’m ok with its size.
I did this painting after my trip to Europe, I went traveling for 4 months, this life experience really changed my life, I feel like a whole different person right now, in this trip I had the chance to see a lot of art, those big masterpieces you always see in pictures. And some other cool stuff not so big. After I came back it really felt like the right thing to do to paint this.
The art piece features symbols that I associate with certain events and feelings that come along with them , I’ll explain a couple of them for you to understand and the rest I’ll leave it to you to derive whatever feeling you perceive and make it yours if necessary.
The circle near the center or the canvas changes the horizontal and vertical pattern followed on the rest of the painting symbolizing how my brain was constantly processing tons info coming from cities, people, streets, etc., becoming a brain storm of ideas, knowledge, and more.
The thick golden paint strokes found all over the paining symbolize the people you meet on your way, people who temporarily stay with you, this souls you meet, they affect your life in a way, on the temporary relationship you get to share with them, you gather a lot of stuff from them, and even though you know you just met them, it feels like you’ve known each other since forever, because you are true, because you are being yourself, because you know they will leave your life soon.
so you want to know a little bit about me well here’s a start, you see I believe that we all have addictions, well my addiction is doing every possible activity that enriches my intellect, some I have more interest in and some I have less but altogether it’s a fun combo of life, I have strong interest in everything involving art, every art form music, paint, dace, everything!... Believe it or not even though I spend a lot of my time appreciating others art and practicing mine, I just don’t see myself at least for now since this thought might change ‘making my art work, or combining it’ art is for me to relax and enjoy!
I’m also in love with languages, I think communication opens doors, not only for social purposes but further more, right now I speak three languages English Spanish and Italian but I don’t think I’m ever going to have enough!
I do like math and science as well; I’m an engineering student so you can figure it out…, I believe that this side of me looks for versatility, being an engineer is introducing me into many fields, and combining them in a single path, I don’t really think it’s including everything I want, but it’s about the best I found, in the future, probably, my soul will seek to fulfill the blanks engineering is leaving, and hopefully, I will have a very nice combo of what I really like and so I'll find out what im doing for the living.
