“art is without limitations. the more you allow, the more you experience diversity and union of oneness”, albero lescay

 

i met alberto lescay in santiago de cuba in 2000, during the researches of my socio-political documentary ‘the independent party of colored people’. his sculptures, especially the abstract ones dedicated to the ‘maroons’ of cuba, have moved me deeply. i have never thought, that he could influence me to paint with no limitations

in 2004, due to a series of socio-cultural documentaries about the brazilian hip hop culture, i met with the legendary os gemeos. the daily interaction with graffiti painting has improved my creativity and assisted me to experience the effectiveness of color on human behavior 

in the coming years, while living and co-creating synergy with the indigenous tribes of sierra nevada (colombia), i had a tremendous shift of consciousness; i sensed all the nurturing and creative feminine energy that brought light into existence  

since this unique and direct experience, i have acknowledged colors and symbols to have tremendous awakening and healing powers

my first handcrafts were experiments of abstract painting and symbols on white t-shirts. later i have used various others techniques, mostly inspired from graffiti painting, photography and language, called c o d e s i g n s
