“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 visiting and with the indigenous tribes in sierra nevada (colombia), i have been experienced a complete re-awaken of my skills and re-connection with nature, light and creative power

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
