“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 would guide me to trust and 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; riding on the wave with them, i have never thought that their daily interaction with graffiti would influence my personal view, regarding the colors and their effectiveness 

in the coming years, while living and co-creating synergy with the indigenous tribes of sierra nevada (colombia), i had a re-union with nature and its creative power -, a complete re-awaken of my skills

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